Description: Voted the best recently introduced species in a recent Sorbus workshop, where the distinct habit of this small elegant tree was fully appreciated. With arching branches of persistent sharply serrated ovate-elongated leaves, held on long springy petioles, which retain the glossy bronze colouration which they emerge for months, then transforming brilliant crimson to orange in autumn. Bearing large cymes of small white flowers followed by yellow fruit ageing orange-red, in the autumn. From seed I collected from Fansipan's second peak in northern Vietnam with Ben Kettle in 2007 at 2650m. Easily grown in any type of fertile well drained soil with some moisture retention.
