Sorbus japonica is one of the less well-known Rowan species, and arguably belongs with the Whitebeams. It is grown mainly for its attractive upright appearance, and good autumn colours.

The leaves are particularly attractive. They are deeply veined, bright green, with serrated edges, and have a downy appearance when young.

The small white flowers appear in late spring.

The red fruitlets are large by rowan standards, and can be cooked.

How to grow

Sorbus japonica is easy to grow and will suit most situation.

We usually graft this variety on a rootstock of Sorbus intermedia (the Swedish Whitebeam) for consistency.
