Tree Information

This clonal selection was raised at our own nurseries in the early 1980s. It stood out as being an extremely robust grower, quick to establish at every stage of production and out-performing the other Sorbus aucuparias. Having studied its characteristics through to maturity, we introduced and named this variety in 1998.

It has a very neat, upright habit and its narrow, compact canopy makes this the best of the species for street and urban planting. Its vigour ensures that it establishes quickly on site, even in harsh conditions. The strongly ascending branch structure maintains the upright, tidy form throughout its maturity.

This tree is free-fruiting with bright orange berries from July to November having produced corymbs of attractive white flowers in May and early June. The berries are very attractive to birds so are almost always eaten while still on the tree.

The leaves are mid to dark green becoming orange-yellow in the autumn. This is our most popular Sorbus amongst tree managers and specifiers.

Size 7m high x 3m wide after 25 years. Ultimately a small tree.
Canopy Neat and upright and compact well balanced crown.
Foliage Pinnate – a long mid-rib with 11-19 leaflets.
Fruit Orange-red fruits in clusters from mid-summer into the Autumn.
