Named by Dr. Hugh McAllister (botanist at Ness) this rowan
originates from Yunnan in China.
When grown on its own roots (not grafted) it is hardy and very
drought tolerant. This species is notable for its attractive
blue-green foliage, good autumn colour, and spectacular displays of
fruit. Each autumn it is covered in deep maroon fruits that
eventually turn white flushed pink.
A perfect choice as a large specimen tree on lighter soils
(avoid heavy clay soils) or on a woodland edge in semi-shade. Give
it space to make the most of it.
