A very beautiful, small, North American tree that is attractive in all seasons,
even in winter when its spreading crown of fine shoots makes a satisfying,
dense, shrubby shape.
In March the branches erupt with a froth of star-shaped flowers in lax conical
heads, just as the coppery pink young leaves unfold - in summer these are
yellowish green, but later turn scarlet and crimson.
In July the tree is studded with dark red berries which become purple-black
as they ripen.
The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
