This little tree produces a fantastic display of colour in autumn: golden yellow, scarlet red and violet. In winter the bark comes off like that of a plane tree leaving light markings of red and brown. At the end of winter, the branches are covered with numerous little red flowers without petals. Whether planted alone or in group this little tree will add great pleasure to your garden.
