A fast growing small tree with fine textured burgundy-bronze foliage and puffy pink flowers in summer. It does very well in the southern states despite summer heat and humidity, and makes a stunning container subject in colder climates. We have also successfully wintered over a specimen for 7 years in front of a south facing stone wall in soil which is well drained. Can be coppiced to keep more shrublike or you can allow it to become a multi branched wide spreading small tree to 25'. Shipping 24-30" plants in 1 gallon pots.
