Korean Mountain Ash (Sorbus alnifolia)

The common name Mt Ash is deceiving because this tree is not an Ash. Korean Mt Ash grows to a medium height approaching 45-50 feet. The tree is cold hardy to zone 4 and is tolerant of poor soils and drought (somewhat). It is very rarely used, even though it makes a very nice street tree or specimen tree in the home or commercial landscape. The tree produces clusters of white flowers in mid May. The flowers persist for several days. The fruit is born in clusters similar to Elderberry in color. These berries are used b y songbirds especially in colder winter weather. I have seen Cedar Waxwings feeding heavily on the fruit. Fall color is orange to scarlet. There has been a shortage of growers for this plant, which is a shame as more should be used.
