Plant Type: Deciduous Trees, Flowering Trees

Beauty for all seasons. Prolific flower production in the spring, blooms are very clear and bright, never muddy, new foilage is an attractive purple-maroon, becomes reddish-green and then red, orange and purple in the fall. Red fruit is persistent into late fall, even winter- that is if the birds don't eat it by then. No littering problems, as birds relish the fruit and will eat it directly off the tree.
