Mountain Ash / Rowan Genus: Sorbus sp. aucuparia A Sketch of the aspects, associations and uses of Mountain Ash / Rowan Genus: Sorbus sp. aucuparia which constitute the forests and give effect to the scenery of Great Britain.

Mountain Ash / Rowan Genus: Sorbus sp. aucupariaThe mountain-ash must not be associated with the genuine ash. The name is a very unfortunate one, referring simply to the likeness, slight as it really is, between the leaves, and which consists in nothing more than in both being pinnately compound. "The mountain-ash is a near relative of the apple and pear. Hence we find in its blossoms the rosaceous type of corolla, while the fruit corresponds, in a certain measure, with that of the orchard, though in dimensions little more than a berry.

The charming spectacle which the flowers present in May, places this tree in the first rank of ornamental ones; and although for two or three months afterwards it makes no show, the delay is more than compensated by September, when the rich vermilion clusters attract the most incurious.
