A really eye-catching tree. Vilmorin Rowan (sorbus vilmorinii) produces a dramatic display of berries that quickly change from crimson to white during autumn and last well in winter. Dainty feathery leaves, which consist of a very many dark-green leaflets cover this tree and change to a deep red colour in autumn.
This tree will reach a final height of 4m (13ft), after 20 years, so is an ideal tree for a small intimate garden.
Vilmorin Rowan is supplied at a height of 1.2-1.80m in a 5-12L container, which means that the tree has an already established root system and therefore this tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

Hi Alan, Yes the tree arrived safely yesterday. Excellent looking tree and extremely well packed. It will be planted as soon as the freezing conditions are over. It is a good shape and size and will look great. Thanks again Murray 0117
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.

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.
