Sorbus aucuparia L.
Common Name: EUROPEAN MOUNTAIN-ASH, ROWAN
Coefficient of Conservatism: *
Coefficient of Wetness: 5
Wetness Index: UPL
Physiognomy: Ad Tree

This European species is widely cultivated and rarely escapes, the seeds dispersed by birds, to forests and swamps as well as sites nearer habitations. First collected in 1898 in Kent Co., though an 1876 collection from Shiawassee Co. is probably of a wild plant, but lacks an explicit statement to that effect. A common cultivar has orange rather than red fruit.
