Sorbus cashmiriana Kashmir rowan

  • Height 10 years: 3m-5m / 10ft-16ft
  • Growth habit: Upright
  • Leaf colour - autumn: Orange / Gold
  • Fruit colour: White

The Kashmir rowan comes from Kashmir and areas near the Himalayas. It has delicate feathered leaves, which turn orange and gold in the autumn.

In late spring it produces tiny pink flowers, which are attractive to birds.

The fruitlets are long-lived, larger than is usual for rowans, and creamy-white in colour. These persist on the tree into early winter.

Sorbus Cashmiriana

We may also have 1-year bare-root trees of this variety - they are not shown here.

Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches. The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).

How to grow

All rowans are hardy but this one of the hardier species.

It is one of the more compact rowans, and a good choice for smaller gardens.
