Sorbus olivacea

Sorbus olivacea is the species that was selected for planting at the entrance to Ness Botanic Garden, where the genus was studied for many years. That says a lot for its excellent qualities. It has dusky green leaves, not really olive green, with about 13 leaflets, and the fruit are really abundant, rosy pink. And the leaves go really bright red in autumn.

Excellent rowan with dusky grey pinnate leaves and clusters of rosy pink fruit.
