Capture the spirit of the Olympic Flame in your garden! The Flame dates back to ancient Greece and symbolises unity amongst the nations and a striving for perfection, harmony, knowledge and life. These beautiful sentiments are embodied in a tree known as the Sorbus commixta Olympic Flame. Plant it in your garden and be inspired by the all year round interest that it brings.
In spring, coppery bronze foliage emerges and as summer approaches, it matures to a lush covering of green leaves made up of smaller leaflets with a toothed serrated edge. Autumn sees a spectacular display of vibrant orange, red and yellow as the leaves turn, bringing to mind the burning fires of the Olympic Flame. Spring delights with creamy white flowers that contrast perfectly against the bronze leaves. The flowers mature into orange-red berries which attract birds and butterflies into your living space.
The Olympic Flame tree is fully hardy and will grow well in most soil types but does best in well-drained and moist sites. It grows to a tall columnar shape reaching heights of 6m with a spread of 4m in a 20 year period. Plant in full sun or partial shade. The upright branches do not protrude, ensuring that it maintains a neat profile at all times.
A Sorbus commixta Olympic Flame tree in your garden is certain to become the centre of attention. They are also perfect to line driveways, avenues and can be used in street planning.
