A very attractive small deciduous tree. The canopy has a rounded shape and during winter displays red and golden heart shaped leaves during autumn. Producing small yellow flowers during spring and the whitish seed coats are used for making soaps and candles. Although we recommend mulching it is also a hardy tree tolerating frost, dry periods and full sun or dappled shade.
