Are you at a loss on what to do with a boring vertical space in a small garden? The Autumn Spire Mountain Ash Tree is the answer to your dilemma! It grows to tall, upright but very compact shape and will fill the space with colour and all year round interest.
Autumn Spire Mountain Ash trees feature lovely mid-green leaves divided into many smaller leaflets. The foliage matures to a vibrant and awe-inspiring autumn display of burning red. Spring and summer see the appearance of clusters of pretty white flowers which turn into luscious bunches of bright mustard-yellow berries as the weather cools. The berries are a magnet for all types of wildlife and soon your garden will be filled with chirping birds and lovely fluttering butterflies. The berries can also be used by ambitious cooks to make a Rowan-style jelly or jam.
Your Sorbus aucuparia 'Autumn Spire' is an easy tree to grow. Plant in full sun, it is fully hardy and will tolerate most soil types, but does best in well-drained loamy or sandy soils. It is also ideal for in-city gardens as it is resistant to pollution. It will also do well in exposed or windswept sites. The tree has a tall upright and compact habit, reaching up to 4m with a spread of around 1m in 20 years.
Plan your garden and plant two as a decorative statement on either side of your garden gate. Plant one in a dull vertical space or plant many in a row along a boundary wall. For something different and thoughtful, it makes a great gift for a friend or loved one on a special occasion.
