Sorbus aria - Whitebeam
Sorbus aria - Whitebeam is a native tree with a compact, domed habit. Ideal for planting as part of a mixed woodland, as a hedgerow tree or in a parkland setting.
The main attraction is its large, rounded thick leaves which are almost white on the underside which then turn a russet brown in the Autumn. Five petalled cream-white flowers appear in clusters in the Spring which then go on to produce scarlet red berries which are often eaten by birds.
