The Cardinal Royal Mountain Ash is an upright, small, deciduous tree, reaching about 30 feet tall and 20 feet wide. It matures quickly and even young trees produce big crops of bright red berries throughout fall and into the winter. These are eventually taken by songbirds, or they can be harvested and turned into jellies, juices and chutneys. Clusters of white flowers develop in May and this tree is self-pollinating and very reliable in always giving a big berry crop. The leaves turn yellow and red in fall. A great feature for the fall, and excellent for new gardens in cold zones.

  • Showy, large clusters of bright red berries through fall
  • White flowers in May
  • Attractive upright crown on a small tree
  • Fast-growing and ideal for new gardens
  • Extremely winter hardy

Plant the Cardinal Royal Mountain Ash in full sun, in any well-drained soil, preferably one that is moist and neutral to acidic. It is incredibly cold-resistant, growing even in zone 2, and doesn’t enjoy areas with hot, humid summers. Once established it is drought resistant. It doesn’t need any special care or fancy pruning, and it is generally free of serious pests but not entirely resistant to fire blight.
