Genus Sorbus can be deciduous trees or shrubs with simple or pinnate leaves and clusters of small white or pink flowers, followed by white, yellow, pink, red or brown berries; some have fine autumn colour.
Details Hand grafted and propagated at Lime Cross Nursery, Sorbus hupehensis 'Pink Pagoda' has some of the most gorgeous pink berries of all Mountain Ash. Before the berries, attractive blue-green pinnate foliage turns to intense red and orange autumn colours. In May-June, fluffy white corymbs of flowers appear which are popular with honey bees. The berries which follow emerge rose pink in big bundles, before turning paler pink in the winter adding a splash of colour to gardens in autumn and winter. These berries not only look beautiful but they provide tasty food for birds in the winter months.
