Pink Ness is one of the best of the pink-fruited rowans. The berries are candy-floss pink, and contrast very attractively with the matt green leaves.
Pink Ness grows with a neat columnar habit.
The name Pink Ness is a nice play on the pink-coloured berries, and University of Liverpool's Ness botanic gardens.

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