Handsome, rounded small flowering tree with horizontal branching is a great focal point at the corner of a house, near the patio or in the shrub border. Up to 4" wide, 4-petaled white to pink to reddish flowers (bracts, actually) float above the spreading branches in June, lasting a very long time and often becoming flushed with more color as they age. Red, raspberry-like fruit that birds enjoy follow the flowers. The dark green leaves turn various shades of orange, red, burgundy and yellow in the fall. An added bonus, especially in winter, is the patchy gray-tan-rich-brown bark that develops on older trees. For best growth this tree requires loose, acidic and well-draining soil. We recommend amending heavy clay soil with shredded pine bark and adding soil sulfur to make it more acidic.
