Sorbus Sunshine: Bareroot Yellow Berried Rowan Trees in Standard Sizes


It is similar to its parent, the yellow berried Chinese rowan Joseph Rock, with darker green leaves and bigger berries that ripen into their rich lemon yellow colour earlier, gradually deepening with more orange tones. Sunshine boasts richly tinted autumn foliage (again earlier than its parent), and theoretically retains its distinctive berries well after leaf fall, provided the birds don't steal them. The flower corymbs in early summer are white and popular with insects.

Delivery season: Rowan trees are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.
Choosing a size: Small trees are cheaper, easier to handle and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our bareroot trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Features:

  • Height: 10m
  • Soil: Any well drained except shallow chalk
  • Use: Specimen, small garden, large container, avenue, urban
  • Colour: Yellow berries, white flowers
  • RHS Plants for Pollinators
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Sunshine Rowans

Any well drained soil apart from shallow chalk. Suitable for large containers designed for trees. Full sun or partial shade. Tolerant of pollution.

Did You Know?

Bred by Hillier Nurseries in 1968 from Sorbus Joseph Rock, it is now the more popular of the two.

Standard trees are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level: their trunk's waist measurement. Unlike sapling trees and hedge plants, standards aren't measured by their height, which will vary quite a bit both between and within species.
So, a 6/8cm standard tree has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8cm and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10cm around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
On average, standard trees are 2-3.5 metres tall when they arrive, but we cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
