See it by the waterfall in the heather
This attractive shrubby rowan belongs to a group of closely
related species all with very large soft fruit, originating from
Kashmir in northern Pakistan. This is an area with some of the most
diverse plant life in the world.
It is distinguished from its closest relatives by having the
distinctive pink flowers in the spring and the fruit it holds
well into winter.
This species was introduced to cultivation through Ness gardens,
and is available from good garden centres, typically called
by it's old name Sorbus cashmiriana 'Rosiness'.
Ness has a national collection of Sorbus with over 500 different
types, planted throughout the gardens.
