An extremely beautiful small tree or shrub with yellow foliage which retains its colour, though the tone changes, throughout the summer. Before leaf fall the colour is particularly strong. The foliage effect is light and airy and the small white flowers that mature trees produce in June are a pleasing extra. It is often planted next to something purple but also looks good next to dark green.
Always a popular tree, but needs very good drainage and shelter from strong winds. Place plenty of gravel and drainage into the planting hole.
Grows to a height of 5m high and spread of 3m wide. Can be easily pruned to size.
