General tree description
Sorbus scalaris is a small tree with wide spreading branches and an open shape. It has small, pinnate leaves up to 20cm long, with 21 to 33 close, narrow leaflets, toothed near their pointed tips. They emerge red-brown and become dark glossy green above, grey-white downy beneath, turning gold, red and purple in autumn. The fruits are small (6mm), in large, dense, red clusters.
