A form of the Chinese Rowan with clusters of warm pink berries in autumn. Otherwise similar to the white berried type, with pinnate grey green foliage and white flowers.

Best in moderately fertile, moist, well drained soil, preferably neutral to acid, but quite tolerant of most reasonable conditions. Moderately drought tolerant, less so if grafted. Sun or light dappled shade.

From seed. Apomictic species.
