12.00

The American Mountain-ash is actually not an ash but is related to apples, roses and cherries. It grows at high altitudes often over 2,000 feet on open exposed mountain tops and ridges. It can be cultivated at lover elevation in gardens though if given good, moist, rich soil, and a cool northern or eastern exposure shaded from summer heat. This small tree grows to about 20 feet tall at most and has lacy pinnate leaves like a sumac. White flowers appear from May-June in clusters followed by bright red berries favored by migrating birds.
