Sheerwater Seedling is a compact form of the Common Rowan or Mountain Ash, and a useful choice if you want the classic scarlet red berries in a small space.
Sheerwater Seedling is not only a bit smaller than the Common Rowan, but its branches are held quite tightly to the main stem, giving it a columnar appearance, although the form relaxes considerably as the trees gets older.
Despite its more compact dimensions, Sheerwater Seedling flowers with great profusion in late spring, and unusually for a rowan tree the flowers are slighly scented.
By early summer the branches are weighed down by the weight of huge clusters of orange-red berries.
In autumn the leaves yellow and orange.
