Also known as ‘Dodong’, this Rowan originates from Japan. Selected from seed by a Swedish botanist in 1976 for its exotic look, it is now firm a favourite in Europe.
Its glossy green foliage is vibrant throughout the growing season and turns to an impressive range of flame oranges and reds in autumn. Dark orange berries are produced from clusters of white spring flowers by late summer.
Its young trunk is punctuated by lenticels and it thrives on most free draining soils. It does not tolerate excessive reflective heat and light from hard areas surrounding it.
This tree is good for bees and other wildlife.
Mature height: 5-8m
