In the Garden
Reaching a maximum of 4m, this tree is a great choice for smaller gardens thanks to its year-round interest. The cup-shaped, white flowers are pretty, but the attractive bark and striking orange to deep-red autumn colours are the primary attractions.
Grow your tree in lightly shaded, moist conditions where the soil is acidic. It is relatively slow-growing, has a naturally pyramidal form, and requires little pruning. This Asian species is cold tolerant, but does not tolerate drought or alkaline soils.
