This is a beautiful, small tree offering year-round interest, even in winter when its spreading crown of fine shoots makes a satisfying, dense, shrubby shape. In March the branches erupt with a froth of star-shaped flowers, just as the coppery pink young leaves unfold; in summer these become yellow-green, but later turn scarlet and crimson before falling. In July the tree is studded with dark red berries which become purple-black as they ripen.
We also stock ‘Ballerina’, ‘Robin Hill’ and ‘Snowflakes’.
Prefers full sun / part shade and a free draining soil.
