Rowan Tree.

Rowan Tree.
Rowans (A.K.A. "Mountain Ash" in Britain & Ireland) are mostly small deciduous trees 10–20 m tall, although a few are shrubs. The leaves are arranged alternately and are pinnate with 11–35 leaflets; a terminal leaflet is always present. The flowers are borne in dense corymbs; each flower is creamy white and 5–10 mm across with five petals. The fruit is a small pome 4–8mm in diameter, bright orange or red in most species but pink, yellow or white in some Asian species. The fruit are soft and juicy which makes them a very good food for birds, particularly waxwings and thrushes which then distribute the seeds in their droppings. Due to their small size the fruits are often referred to as berries but a berry is a simple fruit produced from a single ovary, whereas a pome is an accessory fruit.

The best-known species is the European Rowan Sorbus aucuparia, a small tree typically 4–12 m tall growing in a variety of habitats throughout northern Europe and in mountains in southern Europe and southwest Asia. Its berries are a favourite food for many birds and are a traditional wild-collected food in Britain and Scandinavia. It is one of the hardiest European trees, occurring to 71° north in Vardø in Arctic Norway and has also become widely naturalised in northern North America.
