Rowan tree

Mature and young rowan tree

A narrow and graceful tree with fern-like leaves which turn a beautiful, burnt orange in autumn. Tolerant of air pollution, these trees are perfect for urban gardens. In spring, creamy white flowers are a haven for pollinators, while in autumn the tree is covered with clusters of red berries, which are feasted on by birds and mammals, particularly blackbirds and thrushes.
