Navezhenskaya Mt. Ash
Sorbus acuparia edulis 'Navezhenskaya'
We obtained this variety from St. Petersburg, Russia. It is a beautiful, colorful tree that can grow to about 25' tall, displaying an oval form when young that opens and spreads with age. This variety produces thousands of dainty, white flower clusters each spring, and a profusion of small red fruit (somewhat larger than the unimproved species), lasting from summer to fall, that are used to make jelly and sauces. Is also valued as a food source for migratory birds and as a rich source of pollen for insects.
A hardy, rugged and widely-adapted tree, it thrives in many different soils and aspects. USDA Zones 3-9
