Sorbus sp. ZHNP 241 (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:  The fruit on this species is very hard, as a result they last well into fall and after the foliage has droped.  Stunning fall foliage ranging from yellow to red.  We collected this form near the top of Leigongshan Mountain at 2100 m.  This day on our trip was cold wet and foggy making it quite difficult to see what was around but we managed to find some treasures.
