Pink Pagoda is a selection of the Hupeh or Hubei rowan, from China.
The very long-lasting fruitlets are undoubtedly the key attraction of Pink Pagoda. They appear in late summer, and are initially a summery light pink colour, gradually lightening during the autumn months until they are white by the time winter arrives.
In autumn the grey-green leaves take on autumn hues.

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).
