A more heat and drought tolerant form of this species, with superior insect and disease resistance. The pyramidal form features dense, glossy green leaves that fade to clear butter yellow in fall, and striking winter bark that is a pinkish orange with prominent exfoliation. This large tree is excellent for use as a focal point or shade tree. Deciduous.  Care – Thrives in deep, loamy, moist but well-drained soil amended with sand or gravel, but highly adaptable. Water deeply, regularly in first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established tolerates mild drought, but reaches maximum growth in rich, fertile, evenly moist soils. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring.
