Editorial Note

Bean (1981) discussed this taxon briefly under the name Sorbus zahlbruckneri in a footnote to his article on Sorbus folgneri (now Alniaria folgneri); see below. We have created this hybrid article – Bean’s text under the correct modern name, with appropriate synonymy – whilst we await sponsorship to enable a full revision of this genus to be written. We are re-organising the Sorbus sensu lato articles in this way to enable a new revision of Sorbus sensu stricto to commence in 2023, and to bring the nomenclature of this complex group of plants up to date in line with modern treatments.

See also the cultivar ‘Lemon Drop’ below Alniaria folgneri.

S. zahlbruckneri – This little-known species was seen during the recent Arnold Arboretum Expedition to Hupeh. After his return, Dr Stephen Spongberg procured specimens of trees grown under its name in British gardens, of which he identified only the Borde Hill tree as being the true species.
