The flowers do start with a tinge of orange/pink then to white ,then as they fade they go to spotti pink to dying brown.You need to keep dead heading to keep it going but this time of year it will be going into dormant mode.During flowering peroid you can keep dead heading if not to big or leave and then prune back for a second show,which is what I do.

i have to say I kept mine at a low lwvel as this tree can over take the garden and grows at a fast rate.I took out one tree as it was becoming a problem.not a tree for a small garden at all .

gardening ,would it not be lovely if we could all be perfect at it,but the truth is we never stop learning and we all make mistakes and it does not matter what you do as long as you enjoy being outside and gardening.
