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 (Sorbus Vilmorinii) Options Explained
125-150cm: Usually supplied in a 5-9 L container and will be a single stem and usually have branches for the majority of the trunk.
150-200cm: Usually supplied in a 9-17 L container and pruned to be a Half Standard shape, which means it looks a little like a lollipop with clear stem and a rounded head.
Vilmorin Rowan is supplied at a height of 1.2-2.00m in a 5-17L 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.

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.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
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.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
