Rowan tree in blossom

Creamy white flowers on one of the three rowan trees in Crabtree Fields.

There aren’t many rowan trees in Fitzrovia but there are three in Crabtree Fields public park.

Rowan (Sorbus aucuparia) is native to Britain and is also known as mountain ash, witch wiggin tree, keirn, and cuirn, according to the Woodland Trust.

In autumn red berries will ripen and provide a source of food for birds.
