The pinnate leaves are somewhat feathery, the bark is smooth, and the tree makes an attractive rounded shape.'Joseph Rock' bears clusters of cream-white flowers in late Spring to early Summer,which are attractive to bees, followed by yellow berries in Autumn. The foliage turns to shades of red, orange, purple and scarlet in the Autumn, which set off the yellow berries beautifully.

Planting

From Mid Autumn TO Late Autumn

Plant rowan tree in Autumn, when the young tree is dormant, in a site that gets full sun, or in a partial shade. Dig a hole three times the width of the root ball, place the tree in the hole, and fill in the soil around it. Water it in well.

 

Flowering

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

Rowans flower in Spring. The flowers are creamy white, and are followed by the clusters of orange-red berries

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Mid Spring TO Mid Spring

Propagate rowan trees by taking cuttings 15-20 cms.from green wood in Spring, after the last frost. Remove lower leaves from the cutting, leaving just the last 2 or 3, then dip the end of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, plant the cutting in a pot of moist sand, and place in a warm place until the cuttings root.
