Rowan Mountain Ash – A Deciduous Perennial Tree

Why Mountain Ash (Sorbus Americana)?

Rowan Mountain Ash Tree, scientifically known as Sorbus Americana, is a deciduous understory shrub relatively modest in size, a member of the rose family, and native to the northeastern part of North America, ranging from Newfoundland to Georgia. While the white flowers and the vibrant orange-red fruit add additional interest to the tree, they can also be used as a shade tree in naturalized areas or on slopes.

Over the years, many studies have highlighted mountain ash to cure various ailments, including renal illness, diabetes, arthritis, vitamin C insufficiency, diarrhea, and menstruation issues.

The attractive qualities of the Sorbus Americana tree have led to its widespread cultivation for use in parks and gardens; however, it grows best on lush, wet soil and at the edges of marshes.

Many species, such as catbirds, thrushes, and waxwings, and other forms of flora and fauna, such as butterflies and bees, as well as more enormous creatures like moose, rely heavily on mountain ash.

It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
