PLANT OF THE MONTH

Sor­bus vil­morinii This fab­u­lous small gar­den tree has a long sea­son of in­ter­est but looks par­tic­u­larly good at this time of year when its fern-like leaves turn from sum­mer green to pur­ples and reds in au­tumn. It has small white flow­ers in early sum­mer which are fol­lowed by bunches of bright rose pink berries which slowly fade to white as they age, hang­ing on the branches well into win­ter. S. vil­morinii is a tol­er­ant tree and will grow in sun or par­tial shade in most rea­son­able gar­den soil but on shal­low chalky soil may be shorter-lived.
