Sorbus parvifructa

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 parvifructa is a recently named species, originating in SE Xizang (Tibet). It is very neat and compact, and has finely divided leves with about 11 pairs of leaflets. Although the name means small fruit, they are not that small, and there are large clusters of the. They are almost white, with some pink colouring, and look lovely against the orange autumn foliage.
