Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Mountain Ash Chatacteristics
This is spreading tree with rich green leaves that turn almost florescent red and yellow in autumn and clusters of small white flowers mask the tree in late spring. Crimson berries in autumn with great foliage colours.
Mountain Ash or Rowan is a conical-shaped tree and ideal for a small, urban gardens even those in colder parts of the UK. It will tolerate coastal and exposed conditions, wet sites, chalk and clay although shallow chalk it may suffer.
Mountain Ash Height
A medium height tree, so expect a height of around 6-8m after 10 years. Mountain Ash is quite a columnar tree so expect its width to be around a third of its height.
Our mountain ash (sorbus aucuparia) is supplied at a height of 1.5-2.0m and will be a minimum of 2 years old depending when in the year you buy them.
Message card included at no additional cost if required.
