Sorbus sp. ZHNP 199 (Whitebeam)

Zone: 6 - 9
Natural Range: China
Family:  Rosaceae
Soil:  Moist, humus rich
Light: part shade, sun
Height: 20 feet tall
Attributes:  Deciduous.  Bright red-orange new growth with deeply pleated texture from leaf veining.  Large white flowers with green fruit, spotted brown and blushed with red when in more sun.  Nice structural branching.
Notes:  This species is tentatively ID as S. caloneura but seems distinct.  The fruit on this species is very hard, as a result they last well into fall and after the foliage has dropped.  Stunning fall foliage ranging from yellow to red.  We collected this form near the top of Fanjinshan at 2300 m.  It was a nice sunny day and the fall foliage was particularly nice with bright red coloration running the ridge-line.

Pot Size:  1 Gallon Pot
