Plant Type: Deciduous Shrubs, Flowering Trees

This rounded, deciduous tree with spreading, tiered branches is especially dramatic in the landscape. Its branches stand out in winter while the leaves, edged in a bold creamy white, add superb color and texture to the garden. In early summer, single white flowers are borne in large, flattened clusters up to 7 inches across. Blue-black fruit follows in autumn, attracting birds.

This plant is available in a small tree form and shrub form. The shrub form is smaller in size.
