Sorbus commixta Olympic Flame

Scarlet Japanese Rowan

A cultivar of the Japanese rowan named for its brilliant autumn colour, Sorbus commixta Olympic Flame is a small deciduous tree of compact, columnar habit, very useful where space is tight in the small garden. Creamy-white flowers flowers appear in May, followed in late summer by shiny red berries, which hold on the tree well into winter. The leaves emerge copper-bronze, becoming dark green, then turning to vivid shades of red and orange in autumn. Good for attracting pollinators and wild birds; tolerates urban pollution.
