Sorbus poteriifolia

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 poteriifolia is really tiny, even with time only spreading sideways a little, and not becoming significantly taller. We have a plant no more than 15 cm high after 20 years. It is in all other respects like othe rowans, with pinnate leaves, a good slightly glossy gree, not very significant white flowers, and pale pink fruit nestling amongst the foliage.
