Searching Genus for Sorbus

SORBUS(MOUNTAIN ASH, WHITE BEAM)Family: ROSACEAE
All trees are of modest growth and tough hardy constitution. Most give of their best in autumn when displays of fruit and autumn coloured foliage make them particularly attractive. They must experience cold winters to develop flower buds and good crops of fruit. This makes them ideal for our end of the country. Very tolerant of a wide range of soils. There are basically two different types of Sorbus. The plants belonging to the first type are commonly known as Whitebeams. They have simple leaves that often have serrated margins and are sometimes lobed. The leaves are ordinarily white or silvery beneath giving them a shimmering look when blown by the breeze. In the autumn, their clusters of brown to red fruits are attractive and their foliage turns vivid colors. The plants of the second type are commonly known as Mountain Ashes. These plants have pinnate leaves, giving them a fern-like appearance; the foliage turns shades of red and yellow in autumn. In the spring, Mountain Ashes produce clusters of cream-colored flowers, which are followed by bunches of attractive berries that are usually brilliant red, but may be white, pink, orange, or yellow.
