Copper Kettle is named for its clusters of light copper-coloured fruits, quite different from the traditional rowan-red. Even by rowan standards, the fruits are very persistent, often hanging on into mid-winter.
The fruitlets contrast nicely with the autumnal foliage which takes on red and orange shades.
Copper Kettle grows with an upright habit and is a bit smaller and more compact than most rowans, so a good choice for the smaller garden.
Whilst rowans usually grow true from seed, variations with different characteristics are very common. Copper Kettle is thought to be a seedling of Joseph Rock.
