Upright growing hybrid rowan making a small to medium sized tree with a compact head. Excellent autumn colouring, with golden yellow berries contrasting against the orange, red and purple tints of the autumn leaves.

Best in moderately fertile, moist, well drained soil, preferably neutral to acid, but quite tolerant of most reasonable conditions. Moderately drought tolerant. Sun or light dappled shade.
Rather susceptible to fireblight.
