Jefferson documented

Also known as the Rowan Tree of Scotland, in reference to the bitter rowan berry fruit, this long cultivated species was first noted by Philadelphia nurseryman John Bartram in 1782. Bernard McMahon’s The American Gardener’s Calendar, 1806, included “Sorbus aucuparia, European Service, or Roane Tree” in the appendices “General Catalogue.” Thomas Jefferson planted three “Mountain ash. Sorbus Aucuparia” at Monticello in 1807. In 1870 New York writer Frank Scott admired the tree for its “beauty in autumn” with its “large, drooping clusters of bright red fruit,” which are edible to birds and other wildlife. zone3,zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7
