Sorbus eburnea

Sorbus eburnea was collected near Kanding in the 1930s by a Swede called Harry Smith, and it was identified as a new species and named by Hugh McAllister in 2005. It is attractive in the garden in the autumn, when it has large clusters of white fruit, which are shown off particularly well because the leaves fall relatively early. As with most white-fruited rowans, the fruit last well, as birds take red ones first. But it is also lovely when just showing its foliage, with about 13 pairs of slightly glossy, deep green leaflets making up each leaf. Growth is quite slow, and it will take a very long time before it becomes more than a small tree.

Rowan with big clusters of white fruit, recently named.
