A small, ornamental, flowering tree with a rounded crown and glossy peeling mahogany coloured bark.
Younger trees are upright while mature trees grow to 5-10 metres tall with a more wide-spreading crown of up to 3-8 metres wide. Best planted in deep, moist, well-drained soil and positioned in full sun.
Clusters of small white ornamental flowers bloom in spring followed by red cherries. The narrow willow-shaped green leaves turn yellow in autumn. This beautiful, showy tree will add colour and interest to gardens.
