Sorbus bissetii - Yu14299

Pot Size: 15 litre
Price: £45.00
A shrubby species to 2m tall eventually, with an interesting history, which almost involved its extinction (of known plants). Seed was sent to Ness BG from a plant at Edinburgh RBG which was on its last legs, where it has thrived and been distributed from, all thanks to Dr. Bisset for who it is named for. Characterised by stiff/thick twigs bearing the pinnate leaves to 20 cm long, comprised of 11-15 pairs of leaflets. With dull crimson fruit that fade to almost white by ripening. Best grown is good light in a well drained soil with some humus to retain some moisture, avoiding too rich a soil or too hot a site.
