Rowan / Mountain Ash
Sorbus aucuparia - Rowan or Mountain Ash
A small to medium-sized deciduous native tree, the Rowan produces white flowers in June followed by large bunches of red berries that are very popular with birds. In autumn the foliage turns an attractive yellow/red. Mountain Ash will grow well on almost any soil, except solid chalk rock (so chalk shale is OK...). To 10m

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary.
So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around.
This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height. Most standards are between 2 - 3.5 metres tall, but this is just an average. We cannot tell you how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
