This is a gorgeous deciduous tree with many fascinating features. In summer its single white flowers with violet anthers appear at the leaf axils. It is perhaps best known for its 2" long leaves which turn an outstanding shade of brilliant red in the fall. When the flowers and leaves are gone, it's hard not to notice the coppery flaking bark on the trunk of older specimens. This tree will eventually be 20-25' tall in cultivation. Does best with partial shade in hot summer areas.
