Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
SORBUS 'Apricot Lady'
Hybrid Mountain Ash
Named for the color of its showy berry-like fruits, this hybrid of European mountain ash grows into a handsome small deciduous tree. Its lush ferny bright green leaves turn orange and red tones in fall. Musky-scented dull white flowers in late spring, clusters of apricot-yellow fruits in late summer and fall, and cherry-like gray-brown bark with conspicuous horizontal pores give it further multi-seasonal interest. The berries are favored by birds.
Grow ‘Apricot Lady' in almost any moist, well-drained, humus-rich soil. In cooler climes it tolerates full sun but where summers are hot, site this tree in partial shade. Use in groups or singly as an eye-catching specimen. European mountain ash and its hybrids often self sow, to the point of weediness in the Northwest United States and other areas.
