Sorbus aucuparia, commonly known as rowan or mountain ash, is a deciduous tree native to various parts of Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia. It is popular for its ornamental value, featuring clusters of bright red or orange berries and attractive foliage. Here are some specifications and characteristics of Sorbus aucuparia:

Size: The size of Sorbus aucuparia can vary depending on the specific cultivar and growing conditions. Generally, it is a medium-sized tree that can reach heights of 30 to 50 feet (9 to 15 meters) and a spread of 20 to 35 feet (6 to 10 meters).

Leaves: The leaves of Sorbus aucuparia are pinnate, consisting of several pairs of leaflets with a serrated edge. The leaflets are usually dark green in color and turn yellow, orange, or red in the fall, providing a beautiful autumn display.

Flowers: In late spring to early summer, the tree produces clusters of small, creamy-white flowers. These flowers are attractive to bees and other pollinators.

Fruit: One of the notable features of Sorbus aucuparia is its clusters of bright red or orange berries. These berries appear in late summer and persist into the fall, providing a valuable food source for birds.

Growing Conditions: Rowan trees are relatively hardy and adaptable. They prefer full sun to partial shade and can thrive in various soil types, including well-draining soil with average fertility. They are also tolerant of colder climates.

Drought Tolerance: Once established, Sorbus aucuparia exhibits moderate drought tolerance, though it generally prefers regular watering.

Landscape Use: Rowan trees are commonly used in landscaping for their ornamental value. They are well-suited for parks, gardens, and as street trees. Additionally, their berries and foliage can attract wildlife, making them a valuable addition to wildlife-friendly landscapes.

Cultivars: There are numerous cultivars of Sorbus aucuparia, each with unique characteristics such as different fruit colors or growth habits. Popular cultivars include ‘Edulis’ (with sweet fruit), ‘Asplenifolia’ (with finely divided leaves), and ‘Autumn Spire’ (narrower growth habit).

As with any tree, the specific specifications and characteristics can vary depending on the particular variety and its growing conditions. If you are interested in planting a Sorbus aucuparia in your garden, I recommend consulting with local nurseries or horticultural experts to choose a cultivar that suits your climate and preferences.
