A garden classic, this striking tree has tiered branches bearing cream coloured, variegated leaves. Its branch structure, which may give the impression of masterful pruning, is natural, and the branches and twigs themselves are a shiny, glossy red. It is un upright  deciduous tree, suitable for small to medium-sized gardens, though it requires some shelter from wind to really thrive. Plant in fertile soil which is moist, well-drained and fertile, rich in organic matter, in full sun or light shade. Some careful and sensibly judged pruning in early life may be necessary to get it growing in the correct shape. Well-branched, Irish grown plant, 50-60cm tall in a 5 litre pot. Plants displayed on this website are not necessarily in stock in each of our shops.
