For a tree, a rather low plant, up to 6m.

Perhaps a characteristic of Kashmir Rowan; several pinnate leaves come from much the same place.

The berries are large, marble-sized and pure white without any pink, but if damaged become brownish. There are about 7-9 opposite pairs of leaflets, plus a terminal one.

In autumn, the leaves, rather than turn red, go a pale yellow.

The leaves, lightish green, are widest near the stem, gradually curve to point at the far end and are finely toothed.

The berries are pure white with no hint of a pink tint.

Except where the five petals once were at the 'seams', which look like the bad stitching work of a surgeon.

Berries marble sized.

Bark is dark purplish-brown and shiny.


An Asiatic Rowan cultivated in parks and gardens as an ornamental tree.

Un-like most other Rowan Trees, this one has flowers that are pale pink, in large heads. The fruit are large marble-sized and pure white with no hint of pinkyness about them like those of Dwarf Rohan, Hupeh Rowan (sometimes called Hubei Rowan) or Vilmorin's Rowan
