Description

Sorbus aria, commonly known as the Whitebeam, is an elegant deciduous tree that adds grace and beauty to landscapes. Native to Europe, this tree is characterized by its distinctive silvery-gray bark, which provides a striking contrast to its dark green, lobed leaves. In late spring to early summer, Sorbus aria graces the surroundings with an exquisite display of creamy white flowers arranged in delicate clusters. These blossoms not only contribute to the tree’s aesthetic appeal but also attract pollinators, such as bees and butterflies. As the seasons progress, the flowers give way to small, red or orange berries, further enhancing the tree’s visual interest. With its pleasing form, attractive foliage, and ornamental flowers, Sorbus aria stands out as a charming addition to gardens, parks, and urban environments, offering both visual delight and ecological value.
