Small. The perfect lollipop-shaped tree. The shape is maintained and does not require pruning. The small dark green leaves form a dense crown and in autumn they turn bronze-red to orange-yellow, a strong show of autumn colour. Single white flowers are produced in April and are not very impressive, the round red fruits do not appear very often. This tree has a very distinctive form and is extremely useful in certain locations where no other tree will do, for example, around the front of a building where signage cannot be obscured (hospitals). This tree was also used with great effect around Mini land at Legoland, Windsor.
