Autumn is the time of the year for the Rowan tree and Harlow Carr Gardens provided two varieties that were unfamiliar to me but ravishing in the autumn sunshine. First up is Sorbus “Copper Kettle”, a compact form with, as might be imagined, copper coloured berries. Incidentally the lower colour is provided in the first two images by Euonymus alatus ‘Compactus’, a shrub I covered last year (3rd October, 2015).

Second up is another sorbus new to me, “Sorbus Eastern Promise”, again a small, neat tree for the smaller garden. I did not take a close-up picture for some reason. The berries have a pink tinge to them.
