This tree makes a splendid ornamental specimen, slowly growing and spreading to 20' in cultivation. The fluffy, white flowers are borne in early June on loose panicles 6" long or even longer. The leaves turn a bright yellow late in the fall, staying on the tree well after other trees have lost their leaves. One of the last shrubs to produce leaves in the spring, but well worth it when the soft green appears and then the feathery flowers on a rounded crown.
