Small tree. Vigorous growing with a wonderful form when produced as a multi-stem. This plant looks equally good in summer or winter as its fabulous red mahogany-like peeling bark is such a strong feature. Each plant has its own character and adds instant impact to any site. This multi-stem has been used widely on a range of projects and always does well. As a courtyard tree it creates a real setting and provides superb living sculpture. It looks equally impressive as a little avenue, underplanted with a low shrub layer.
