Leaves are palmate and yellow-green, tinged with red in spring, turning apricot and gold in fall. Winter bark is coral red and the color intensifies to almost salmon as the weather gets colder. Striking fall foliage color and uniquely colorful winter bark display which is best in full sun. Strong growing especially when young. Provide protection from winter winds.
Perfect in a morning sun/afternoon shade spot. Feed yearly with an organic fertilizer. Prune in late winter or early spring when plant is dormant to remove weak or crossing branches.
