Copper Kettle features clusters of coppery-amber fruits, which turn a golden yellow as autumn progresses.
Even by rowan standards, the fruits are very persistent, often hanging on into mid-winter.
The leave are pale green over the summer, gradually taking on bronze tints in late summer, and finishing the autumn with bright red and orange shades which are just as vivid as many maples.
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.
