The Sorbus aria 'Majestica', commonly known as the Whitebeam, is a distinctive and attractive medium-sized deciduous tree that graces many British landscapes. This variety is particularly noted for its robust and elegant form, growing to an approximate height of 10-15 meters with a broad, rounded canopy. Its large, ovate leaves are a striking feature, showcasing a rich green hue on the upper surface and a silvery-white underside, creating a shimmering effect when rustled by the wind.

In spring, the Whitebeam is adorned with dense clusters of small, creamy-white flowers that provide a valuable nectar source for pollinators. As the seasons progress, these flowers give way to clusters of vibrant red berries, which are not only visually appealing but also attract a variety of birds and wildlife, adding ecological value to gardens and parks.

The foliage of Sorbus aria 'Majestica' undergoes a stunning transformation in autumn, turning a brilliant golden-yellow before falling. This seasonal display adds a burst of color to autumnal scenes. The tree is also relatively low-maintenance and hardy, capable of thriving in a range of soil types, including chalky and limestone soils, making it a versatile choice for urban and rural settings alike. Its resilience to pollution further enhances its suitability for street and city planting. Overall, the Whitebeam 'Majestica' is a splendid addition to any landscape, offering year-round interest and ecological benefits.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
