Sorbus microphylla agg.

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 microphylla agg. is a Chinese species, still waiting to be named. It is very beautiful, with twenty or thirty small leaflets on each leaf, changing to deep red in autumn, when there are clusters of fruit that are white when they are fully ripe, but changing from red to pink to white as they mature.
