Glendoick White Baby®

Sorbus
Glendoick White Baby is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators

As the name suggests, the main feature of Glendoick® White Baby is the clusters of creamy-white persistent berries, which become bright white and transclucent as the autumn progresses.

The leaves are strongly "pinnate" - each leaf consists of lots of individual leaflets, giving a feathery appearance.

This small tree is at its best in the autumn, when the white fruitlets contrast with the dark brick red colours of the autumn foliage.

History

'Glendoick White Baby' was raised at Glendoick Gardens, near Perth, Scotland.  Most Sorbus species are well-suited to the short-growing season of Scotland, as shown by their late flowering and the rapid formation of persistent fruitlets.
