This Sorbus was raised on our nurseries and it was clear very early on that this out-stripped the pink-berried varieties we used to grow. It has great vigour and as such is quick to establish and soon reaches its final height as a small tree.

The flowers appear during May/June in corymbs and are followed by the berries that turn a striking pale pink with a white blush. It is a good substitute for Sorbus hupehensis, even though it is not a pure white colour.
