Hi, looking for help identifying a tree that was purchased some years ago. It appears to be a species of Sorbus, resembling a common Rowan but differing principally in the colour of its berries which eventually reach a beautiful and vivid orange in October (never turning red). My recollection tells me that it was called Autumn spine but I can find no tree that looks similar to it on the internet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ok no pic so that makes it difficult but If it is Autumn Spire it was supplied by Flannerys Nursery Kildare as they own breeders rights on it. so where did you purchase.

Thanks, one letter made all the difference to the google search. It is Autumn Spire and was purchased in a nursery in Donegal.
