Sorbus Aria Lutescens Standard Trees

Sorbus aria Lutescens is a variety of Whitebeam tree with a paler colour than Sorbus aria. Its leaves are golden yellow foliage when mature. It is a hardy, native, medium-sized, deciduous tree that has a naturally upright and rounded canopy, beautifully suited for planting along drives and avenues reaching a height of about 15 metres. However, if you are going to plant several different Whitebeams in a group, mixing in some Lutescens will create a more varied, natural looking stand. Its best features (apart from its mature foliage) are the silvery grey hairs that cover the new leaves and which remain on the underside of the mature leaf - this is why they are called Whitebeam. Sometimes the hairs stay on the leaf longer than normal, giving it a frosted appearance all over. The young foliage can also be really gorgeous in strong sunlight, as the hairs reflect the light well and shine like silver. Sorbus Lutescens produces panicles or flattened clusters of simple yellowy-white flowers in late spring, which become green berries that ripen into a shiny red by September and are much loved by birds.

The strength of these trees is their tolerance of a wide range of soil types and their resistance to drought. Sorbus aria Lutescens will thrive on the coast and wind blasted sites, it is also quite happy in the city. 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. 

History & uses of Sorbus Lutescens:

Its timber is extremely hard and surprisingly light, it also has a lovely two-tone effect with reddish heartwood and white outer rings that look great when used in doors and table tops or when turned.
