Emiel is sometimes classified as a rowan, but it belongs to a species which has many of the characteristics of the whitebeams - in particular the silver-grey colouring of the undersides of its leaves, which are attractive through spring and summer and retained into autumn. Also, unlike most rowans the leaves are narrow and pointed rather than being segmented into multiple feathers.
The clouds of small white flowers turn into dense clusters of tiny orange fruitlets in autumn.
Emiel grows with a spreading shape (again, different to the more upright habit of most rowans).
