Sorbus discolores sect.

This genus includes the rowans (mountain ash) and whitebeams, and this present group consists of the rowans, technically known as the Aucuparia section. These are small, graceful trees or shrubs with attractive foliage, which in the rowans is usually pinnate, toothed or lobed and provides good autumn colour. In spring or early summer they produce dense corymbs of frothy white or pinkish flowers, which are followed by fruit varying in colour depending on the species. Many species are apomictic, i.e. self-fertile, and so seedlings are clones of the parent. For this reason there are many species, groups of which can be similar to one another.

Sorbus discolores sect. is an excellent rowan, one of those that is still waiting to be named. It is a good small tree for the garden at all time, but it is particularly good in Autumn, when the fruit ripen to bright pink, looking wonderful against the foliage, which becomes golden and then orange.
