American Mountain Ash


In May and June, the tree is covered in clusters of white flowers. Later in the summer, bunches of bright orange-red berries appear. Its leaves have small, palm like leaflets, with toothed edges. Smooth, gray bark. It is a smaller tree, with a narrow rounded crown. Bright red leaf stalks. Great for smaller areas, gardens, yards. Native to northeastern North America from Newfoundland to Manitoba south to northern Illinois, northern Michigan and New Jersey plus further south in the Appalachians to Georgia. The American mountain-ash and related species are also referred to as Rowan trees. Berries are attractive to birds and animals, but too acidic to be eaten fresh off the tree by humans. Berries may be made into jellies.
