Hallo to both Jims,
English plantnames are often only confusing and nonsense.
Mountain ash is nonsense (in that article) because of wrong copying.
>From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia*:
**Mountain Ash* is a name used for several unrelated trees. It may refer to:
* /Eucalyptus regnans
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eucalyptus_regnans>/, the tallest of
all flowering plants
* /Fraxinus texensis
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fraxinus_texensis>/, an Ash tree
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ash_tree> species in Texas
* Trees in the genus /Sorbus <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorbus>/
in North America (mainly U.S.A.) .
* In Britain it is used exclusively for Sorbus aucuparia
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorbus_aucuparia> which is also
commonly known as Rowan <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rowan>.
But sometimes even some old Latin names existing parallel. Officially
only one is the right one!
*Aronia **melanocarpa (=**Sorbus melanocarpa)
More synonym :/Aronia nigra/, /Sorbus melanocarpa/, /Pyrus melanocarpa/
und /Mespilus arbutifolia/ var./ melanocarpa
I am pretty sure, you are already a fan of this tree!
