Sorbus Eastern Promise
- Height 10 years: 3m-5m / 10ft-16ft
- Growth habit: Upright-spreading

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 compared to the more common orange-red.
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.

Trees should reach their mature height after about 10 or more years.
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).
