“A growing source of excellence”

(Swedish Whitebeam)

Sorbus intermedia ‘Brouwers’ or commonly known as Swedish Whitebeam has distinctive lobed leaves that are dark green in colour with grey hairs on the underside, giving a silver-grey appearance.

Sorbus intermedia Brouwers is a clone and will reliable produce branches that are more ascending in nature resulting in a even pyramid shaped crown.

Beautifully creamy white flower give off a lovely scent in May, which provides nectar which is followed by orange and red fruits in small umbels, which remain until October. These berries contrast with the fierier orange tones of the leaves of autumn.

FACT: With pretty foliage and regular crowns it is an ideal candidate for street planting and a super tree for under lighting.
