A compact, upright tree with a columnar habit, and heavily veined grey-green leaves that appear to weep and twist to reveal their striking white undersides throughout the growing season. Showy clusters of creamy-white flowers attract plenty of insects in spring, followed by small brown fruits in autumn.

History: Raised from a tree growing in the Arnold Arboretum, Boston, USA. Named after Hillier’s one-time foreman and late keeper of the Savill and Valley Gardens, a noted gardener and plantsman. Received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Sorbus Growing Tips: Grow in moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil in full sun or light shade. Hardy and tolerant of urban pollution and coastal conditions.

Height and Spread (after 10 years): 4m x 2m
