Ember Glow

Sorbus aucuparia
Ember Glow
Ember Glow is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators

Ember Glow is a particularly attractive Mountain Ash, on account of its bluish-green leaves which change to reds and oranges in the autumn.

The fruits persist well into winter, and retain their pink-red colour.
