Sorbus commixta v. rufroferruginea - BSWJ6078

Pot Size: 10 litre
Price: £60.00
Proving to be a bit of an oddity when growing in our stock field where the growth is more shrub-like to almost prostrate initial growth. Forming a medium-sized shrub where we encountered this elegant species with arching branches of leaves to 20 cm long. Which are composed of up to 15 sharply serrated and pointed pinnately arranged leaflets that are hairy along the mid-ribs below, turning crimson in autumn. Bearing bright red fruit in the autumn on cymes to 10 cm across, which have followed the white flowers carried in May to July. From one of our seed collections from the cold mountains of the remote island of Yakushima, Japan gathered in the autumn of 1998. Easily grown in any type of fertile drained soil in sun or shade.
