A thrilling, densely-branched, small tree with highly dramatic foliage color. Spring leaves are brilliant salmon-red, green in midsummer, then turn a brilliant orange-scarlet in autumn. New growth continues to emerge red, contrasting beautifully with the mature foliage. The diminutive size fits well in small spaces and containers. Deciduous.

Doing well
by John in Nashville, May 4, 2017

The plant had one flaw. A tag was left on it when it was younger and plastic is now embedded in the trunk of the tree. Hopefully the tree will eventually absorb it without any long term effects. Picked a really nice protected spot and the tree has taken off nicely. Looks beautiful.
