    • Ideal for growing as a specimen tree, or in avenues
    • Grows to a compact 6 x 3m

Care Guide

Excellent disease resistance, average pest resistance

Not prone to many diseases in cold regions but prone to fire blight in warm areas. Prune away affected branches if this happens. Lichen will sometimes grow on the bark, and in rural areas deer may eat the berries.MORE

Water during dry spells

Watering is only needed in long droughts. You can also water thoroughly during spring to ensure rapid growth during summer months.MORE

Full sun to partial shade

Sorbus trees aren't too picky about their position - they will grow in open, sunny sites (6h+) or partial shade(3-6h).MORE

Happy in most soils

Prefers well drained, acidic soils but will be fine in any type.MORE

No feeding required

Don't worry, this isn't a hungry tree so your food bills won't be going up!MORE

Prune annually

Never prune during the growing season as sap will attract bugs and diseases, although any time of year is acceptable for dead wood removal. If diseased, then prune away affected branches.MORE
