I'm thinking of planting a rowan tree specifically for its berries to attract wild birds to the garden. It will be situated towards one corner and I am to restrict the height to no more than 15 feet.
Can anyone verify that Cardinal Royal is popular with birds? I think the shape is better for where I intend to plant. Should I stick to the tried and trusted UK native variety - wildlife value is the most important criterion.
