Autumn Spire has the characteristic feathered leaves of the native Rowan, but grows with a far more columnar habit.
In autumn the leaves turn from blue-green and take on intense red-bronze tints - one of the most coloured of all the Rowans.
The fruitlets are not the usual Rowan-red - they are a bright yellow, contrasting nicely with the autumnal foliage. They can still be used for making Rowan jelly.
If you are looking for a small upright / columnar Rowan tree with spectacular fiery autumn colours, this is the one to choose.
