Sorbus Aria Majestica

Sorbus aria Majestica is a larger form of the common Whitebeam reaching a height of about 20 metres which is about 5 metres taller than its parent and the leaves, flowers and fruits are also a bit bigger. It is otherwise very similar and so is good for adding some variety to a group of whitebeam trees to make it look less uniform. It is upright when young, becoming more of a rounded cone shape when mature. The distinctive leaves of Sorbus aria Majestica are bright green on top and covered with downy white "hairs" below. The foliage turns gold in the autumn, making a perfect backdrop for the dark red berries that hang in clusters until the birds finish them. Which they will... If this is not for you, then why not look at the rest of our range of Whitebeam Trees and other Sorbus varieties

Standard trees are the largest size that we deliver; you can also buy younger common Whitebeam saplings here.

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. Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. Because every tree is different it is not possible to give you a more accurate estimate of height when planted.

History & uses of Sorbus Majestica:
Majestica is listed as Decaisneana in some older books. It won the RHS Award of Garden Merit in 2002.
