Plant details

Its open crown gives this tree a handsome outline, but its most fetching feature is without doubt its bark which shines with a burnished copper gleam in different shades of rose, pink and purple. It peels gracefully, offering a contrasting honey or reddish-maroon backing with a grey bloom. The leaves are oval to lance-shaped and pale green.
