This handsome tree was introduced about a century ago and has been extensively planted in streets and parks. Neater and denser than the simple species, it grows quite fast while young, producing a neat formal shape, almost triangular in silhouette. The leaves are brighter and shinier than the species, and turn rich yellow and orange shades in autumn, often remaining on young trees all winter before falling. A specimen tree that is useful as a focal point in larger gardens. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
