Sort By: In Stock

Rowan (aka Mountain Ash), and Whitebeam are members of the Sorbus family.
They are small to medium-sized, fast-growing native trees from 6-18 metres tall, very useful as avenue trees, and in smaller gardens as lawn features.

Rowans carry creamy flower heads in May/June, and graceful leaves that mature to a range of striking Autumn colours, along with attractive bunches of bright berries. 

Whitebeam's best feature is its handsome leaves with their silvery-grey hairs on the underside that reflect the light and brighten up your garden.

What size Rowan / Whitebeam trees should I buy?

  • If you are not in a hurry to get a full sized Rowan tree, we recommend starting with the smaller 6/8cm girth size.
  • If you are in a hurry and need instant impact, then go for the 8/10cm girth size.

Standard trees are measured by their girth 1 metre above the ground, and young saplings are measured by height.
Therefore, a 6/8cm Standard Rowan tree is much bigger than an 60/80cm sapling Rowan tree. If a tree is available in both sizes, it will be noted in the product descriptions.

Mountain Ash (Sorbus) is no relation to Common Ash (Fraxinus), and is unaffected by Ash dieback disease.
