  • Q:

    Could you tell me approx how fast this tree grows? I would like a tree that grows relatively quickly to replace a tree that has died. This tree comes under the quick growing section but the information states that the rate of growth is average. Also, does it retain its leaves all year round?

      A:

      Hello there
      Sorbus hupehensis 'Pink Pagoda' is a deciduous tree, with rich red autumn foliage. It is really hard to say how fast a tree will grow as many external factors can affect it's growth rate, but approx 30cm a year.
      Hope this helps

Perhaps it is because the colours of autumn are so variable in the UK that we value them all the more when they appear. As levels of sunlight fall in autumn and the days become shorter, photosynthesis is no longer effective. For the tree, leaves tha
