Joseph Rock (sorbus 'joseph rock') is a spectacular mountain ash because of its tiny, bright green leaflets that turn lovely shades of orange, purple and red in autumn. Groups of pearly white flowers develop in spring and are followed in autumn by beautiful small yellow berries, which are loved by birds.
Joseph rock is able to withstand a wide range of soils and conditions.
A small tree, so expect a height of up to 4m (13ft after 20 years. Supplied at a height of 150-200 cm tall in a 7-12 litre container.
Message card included at no additional cost if required.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Orders over £300 can be discounted by contacting us on 0800 043 1057
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.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
