Sorbaria tomentosa   Himalayan Sorbaria I

Sorbaria tomentosa whole Sorbaria tomentosa close

This introduction from the Himalayas escapes from gardens to rocky places or in their absence, walls. This one was growing out of the mortar of a railway bridge and has been thriving there for a few years.

There a very few records in the British Isles for this introduction and what few there are are mostly in southern England. There is one record in Scotland and none in Ireland or Wales.
