Sorbus sitchensis, also known as Sitka mountain-ash, is a versatile small deciduous shrub that can also grow into a small tree up to 12 ft tall. Endemic to northwestern North America, this multistemmed shrub produces abundant crops of bright pinkish-red berry-like pomes that turn sweeter and taste best after a frost. Indigenous people have used infusions of the branches, roots, and bark for a variety of medicinal purposes, including treating stomach problems, rheumatism, and bed-wetting in children. This species is able to establish in poor soils and exposed broken ground, making it suitable for use as a pioneer species in re-establishing woodland. Western mountain-ash tolerates light shade but produces more fruit in a sunny position. It is hardy to USDA Zone 4-8, prefers well-drained moist soil, and can tolerate strong winds but not maritime exposure. This slow-growing shrub is perfect for adding diversity to woodland gardens and sunny edges.
