This uncommon tree native to China, has the most unusual, showy blooms! The flowers suggest white doves nesting among the large green leaves. The foliage turns a beautiful yellow in the fall when the conditions are right. Protect newly planted trees in cold winter areas the first few years. The Dove Tree becomes hardier as it ages. A specimen with a grand structure providing lovely shade. We have a 30' specimen at the nursery which is the "talk of the town" when it flowers. Grows best in well-drained, moist soil and prefers light shade, especially where summers are warm.

E.H.Wilson considered this med-sized shade tree to be "the most interesting ; beautiful of all trees of the north temperate flora" ; likened the white bracts it festoons itself in late spring to "huge butterflies". SUN/Med
