Sorbus aucuparia, also known as the Rowan or European Mountain Ash, is a stunning deciduous tree that is native to most of Europe and parts of Asia. Its mature form is rounded and oval, with dark green leaves that change into yellow, red or purple colors in autumn. The tree blooms white flowers in May, which form into orange-red berries that are enjoyed by birds. Sorbus aucuparia is a fast-growing tree that can reach up to 50 ft in height and is wind resistant, making it ideal for shelterbelt plantings. It prefers open sunny positions in reasonably good soils and is frost hardy, but dislikes excessive heat. Apart from its ornamental value, the plant has many uses. Its fruits are used to create a cosmetic face-mask to combat wrinkled skin, and all parts of the plant give a black dye, thanks to the tannin content. Sorbus aucuparia is also used as fodder for livestock and is planted to fortify soil in mountain regions. This undemanding and beautiful tree can be a valuable addition to any garden.
