Description

This plant is a broad crowned tree with attractive foliage. The small medium green, deeply lobed leaves turning brillant orange-red to wine-red in fall. Small, panicles of very fragrant creamy white flowers come in the spring. It can be grown as either a single or multi-stemmed tree. Its irregular growth habit creates an interesting silhouette. It will become chlorotic if planted in alkaline soils. Good in full sun. -Fort Collins Nursery

Water Saving Tip:

Mulching and adding compost to soil can minimize evaporation and help soil absorb and store water.
