A gift from my sister-in-law, this is one of the first small trees we planted after moving in. It’s stayed basically the same size over the last 10 years, growing a little more stocky and full. While the wispy lime green leaves are interesting in the spring and summer, they transform into an amazing flame-red in the fall, which is the real reason I give this variety an A.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
