Sorbus commixta 'Olympic Flame' tree

Japanese rowan trees

from From £49.99 (ex. VAT)
( £59.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

The name for this spectacular Mountain Ash tree was inspired by the columnar habit and fiery autumnal colours, resulting in the dazzling Olympic Flame. The pinnate foliage emerges coppry bronze, turning green through summer and transforming to lively reds and oranges in autumn. The autumn leaves clash brilliantly with the orange - red berries whilst in the spring time, creamy flowers sit prettily upon the bronze - green leaves.

This variety of Sorbus is wonderfully suited to avenue or street planting as the columnar habit does not protrude into surrounding space but maintains a neat profile. Sorbus commixta 'Olympic Flame' is tolerant of clay and prefers an acidic soil but can be planted in most well-drained sites. Expect a height and spread of 6 x 4 meters in 20 years.

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order. Many are despatched within 24 hours of receiving the order, but please allow up to 10 working days to be on the safe side. There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached trees or trees over 2.5m in height (all trees called Standard, Premium Standard, Heavy Standard, Extra Heavy Standard, Mature Trees or Pleached) because we have to group orders together into geographic areas for a specialist haulage contractor to deliver and this takes a bit of scheduling.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure and at no extra charge. Although we really don't like to give ourselves wriggle room (because we so rarely need it!), we do have to say that we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

The vast majority of trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your order. You can give us instructions on where to leave your delivery either via the checkout or send us a separate email. For some mature or pleached trees we may contact you in advance if the delivery driver needs help getting the tree/trees off the vehicle.

All trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

Delivery Costs

Smaller trees/bushes have a delivery charge of £7.95 plus vat (excluding Highlands and Islands). Medium trees of a height of 1.5-2 metres have a delivery charge of £9.95 plus vat (excluding Highlands and Islands). Orders for multiple trees have a single delivery cost of £12.95 plus vat (excluding Highlands and Islands).

Mature trees and pleached trees are more expensive to deliver. Cost varies by postcode and is calculated in the check out process. You can buy more than one tree for the same delivery cost, so if you are purchasing a good number of trees it works out to be economical.

Highlands and Islands charges start from £29.95 plus vat and are calculated in the check out process.

Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and Overseas Destinations

Our courier charges are not viable for just one or two trees, but if you have a larger requirement then please do speak to us and we'll see if we can find a solution.
