Is this  plant a Rowan? (pic).

This plant has been growing amongst my other Rowans. It just seems to have a different  appearance to the others. The leaves look similar, but not quite the same.

 Maybe it is a different species  of Rowan, or could it be an imposter?

The leaves are narrower, and there are noticeable spaces between each leaf. The stems are a red colour, at least at the moment.

See other Rowan below.

    It looks like a Sorbus to me. Sorbus Aucuparia.

    I do apologise, I was only looking at the bottom photo and not looking at the top one. Agree the top photo is not a Rowan. Asarum might be right about Sorbaria...
  • Looking at the images of Sobaria online, that seems to match the leaves. 

    Some of them are 15 quid online. I wonder how I have ended up  with that in one of my pots  :)
