Sorbus Aucuparia Saplings

Sorbus aucuparia is known as the Mountain Ash Tree or Rowan Tree. It is a hardy native plant that thrives on any soil except chalk. Sorbus aucuparia is not suitable for a clipped hedge but it can be grown as a screening tree up to about 15 metres high.
The plants on this page are young saplings. You can also buy larger Sorbus aucuparia trees here. Alternatively, see our selection of native hedging plants or view our full range of hedging.

Bareroot saplings are only delivered during winter (Oct-March).

Choosing a size:
When you are ordering a large quantity of Sorbus aucuparia for a big planting project, we suggest that you buy the smaller, 60/80cms tall plants. They are cheaper than large plants, easier to handle and more likely to cope well with poor conditions.
All of our young trees and shrubs are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

General description of Rowan Trees:

Rowan trees, called Mountain Ash in some parts, are a small to medium-sized, deciduous native. Not quite a hedge plant, it is a good tree for taller screening. It produces white flowers in June followed by large bunches of red berries that are very popular with birds. In autumn the foliage turns a warm mixture of yellows, reds and pale browns.
Rowan is a very hardy tree that will grow on exposed hillsides with poor, rocky soil. However, it is shaped easily by the wind. Rowan trees in sheltered sites can top 15 metres in height, but trees on wind blasted slopes will become twisted, shrubby looking plants.

Did You Know?

Aucuparia is a Latin word related to catching birds, indicating that bird catchers would use this tree's berries to lure their prey.
