The Sorbus Vilmorinii features feathery dark green leaves which have a memorable autumn display of deep purples and reds. In spring, flat-headed bunches of small white flowers emerge and are later replaced by attractive berries. The berries are one of the best attributes of this tree; they initially have a crimson-pink colour and the colour slowly drains to a near-white colour. The delicate, fern-like leaves hang gracefully on the arching branches and contrast beautifully with the summer flowers and the autumn berries. This compact specimen tree is the perfect choice for a smaller garden .
