Design Ideas: The reduced stature of this multi-branched shrub or small tree is perfectly scaled for smaller residential gardens. Feature in large containers as a patio or entry focal point. Good disease resistance ensures attractive foliage and abundant flowering with little care, making it well suited for mass planting in large-scale beds or as an informal hedge. Plant near pathways where the handsome, exfoliating trunk can lend interesting texture and appeal, especially during the dormant winter months.

Thrives in average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed in early spring. Thin young trees late winter to early spring; leave 3 to 7 main trunks or canopy branches. Remove suckers from the base of older trees.
