Kashmir used to be a principality in the Himalayas known for its extraordinary shawl wool. It was super soft, warm and expensive. Hence, everything connected with the name Kashmir evoked feeling of exotic beauty and high price. Kashmir rowan is a beautiful tree that, luckily, is not an expensive item.

It is a lovely small tree with both decorative foliage and fruit. The deciduous leaves are pinnate, composed of 17-21 mid green leaflets which change to golden orange, brilliant carmine red and bright burgundy red in autumn. Small pinkish-white flowers are composed in corymbs in mid spring and are followed by white spherical fruit in autumn that persist long after the tree lost its leaves. It grows at medium growth rate making strong branches forming a symmetrical oval crown that has a nice shape already from young age.

Kashmir rowan is not fussy about soil type. It will grow in almost any well-drained soil and thrive in medium fertile, humus-rich soil, making larger leaves and more flowers. Hardy to min. -27°C (USDA zone 5), probably a lot more.
