Rowan Trees

Steeped in folklore, the native Rowan is a compact, pollution-tolerant tree ideal for smaller gardens and a magnet for wildlife. Boasting Spring blossom, Autumn colour and brightly coloured berries, this tree can take whatever life can throw at it, whether it’s black magic or carbon monoxide. Plant it near your house for protection - or just because it looks fantastic all year round. Top tip: for planting in winter, choose bare root Rowan trees - they'll quickly establish in your garden and get off to a flying start in the spring.

Choose your Rowan Trees

Rowan trees are naturally compact and can be pruned to suit any size of garden. If you have the space, then the largest is Vilmorinii, an RHS Award winner with attractive pink berries. For smaller gardens we recommend the very compact Pink Pagoda. The classic Mountain Ash is the most popular, also an RHS Award holder. The colour of the berries varies from yellows (Joseph Rock) through pinks to deep Autumnal reds (Japanese Rowan, Whitebeam).

Where to grow your Rowan Trees

Rowan trees are easy to grow and will thrive in any well-drained fertile soil, preferring slightly acidic ground. They do best in an open, sunny position where the berries will ripen to their best colour, but will also be perfectly happy in shade. Rowans are an excellent choice for roadsides and urban spaces due to absorbing and reducing high volumes of pollution.

Rowan Tree Care Tips

Rowan trees only need to be watered during prolonged droughts, but watering in the Spring will result in more rapid growth during the Summer months. They are not prone to disease in colder areas, but in warmer parts may be susceptible to Fire Blight - in which case, prune away the affected branches. Prune only in the dormant season. For more tips and advice about growing and caring for Rowan trees, see our Full Care Guide.
