Sorbus discolor

Sorbus discolor is an attractive Rowan tree. Small white flowers appear in late spring, quickly followed by large clusters of berries.

While most rowans tend towards red / orange, yellow, or pink berries, Sorbus discolor berries are quite variable, and have shades of pink and orange.

The classic pinnate leaves take on yellow / orange tints in the autumn.
