Eastern Promise

Eastern Promise rowan

Eastern Promise makes a good choice if you are looking for a rowan tree that is a bit different. The berries have a distinctive coral pink tinge, and retain this colour for most of the autumn.

In other respects this is a typical rowan tree, which means easy to grow, tolerarant of many situations and with attractive bronze / orange tinted autumn leaf-colour.
