The Rowan (Sorbus aucuparia) tree is a very popular fast growing native tree, reaching about 10ft in 10 years. Produces attractive red berries and leaves turn an attractive shade of orange in autumn.
In folklore the Rowan is one of the most magical and mystical of trees believed to ward off witches and evil spririts and considered so sacred that they were rarely cut down or burnt. Also known as the Mountain Ash Tree, the Rowan thrives in open, dry and wet areas. Makes a good medium sized tree gift. The current height of the tree is 20-40cm and it can be planted year round.
With each tree gift, your tree is presented in a jute drawstring bag with your own personal message and planting instructions.
