This is not common mountain ash.  Very cold hardy and easy to grow.  Mainly growing for its red fruit in fall and winter.  Excellent for medium garden.  Best growing in full sun location.  Good pest and disease resistant.  Low to no maintenance.   Dense hardy wood is very strong for strong wind and stormy rains.  Root system is strong so it is really good for planting in the parks. Small pink or near white flowers in late spring, followed by ripe red fruit in clusters from fall throughout winter. Very good for winter interest.  Birds and squirrels like to feed on the red fruit in winter.  USDA Zones:4-9.  Mature size:30’40′(H) X 20’30′(W).  Propagate by seeds or cuttings.

不常看到的花楸.  中型落葉喬木主要以觀花及觀果為主的庭園樹.  非常強健易於栽種.  最好栽種在全日照處.  很耐寒,沒什麼病蟲害,是不須維護的樹種. 它的硬木材質很能抵擋強風豪雨.  不過根系也挺旺盛的,適合中型庭園或公園的用樹. 米白色接近白色或粉紅色的小花於春末綻放,有香味. 葉綠但葉背白色.  夏末果實成熟轉紅,吸引鳥類或松鼠覓食.  紅色果實維持到隔年初春,有很長的賞果期.  成熟株高為30-40呎,寬幅20-30呎.  以種子或扦插來繁殖.
