An excellent small-scale shade tree with a colorful, spreading canopy of thick foliage that emerges reddish purple to bronze in spring and matures to glossy dark green in summer before turning vibrant shades of yellow, orange, and red in the fall. Attractive exfoliating bark boasts small red-anthered flowers on bare branches in late winter. Deciduous.  Care – Prefers slightly acidic, well-drained soils with consistent moisture in cooler climates, but adapts to a range of soil conditions and tolerates light shade in warmer regions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize in early spring.Pruning time: winter.
