This deciduous small tree initially has a pyramidal form, and later rounded. Cercis-like, opposite, heart-shaped blue-green leaves are borne on stiff, slender, pendulous branches that fan out from the crown and sweep the ground. Caramel-scented foliage emerges bronze or purple-red, turns blue-green, then fades to gold or apricot in autumn. Tiny red flowers emerge in late March or early April before the leaves.
Stands out all year long. Leaves fall to the ground all at once in autumn. Suited to a residential garden due to its compact shape. Provides light shade. Great as a specimen or in a group. Plant in early spring in full sun, in rich, well-drained, slightly acidic soil. Water generously until established and during hot, dry summers.
