Plant details

This beautiful tree is one of Nigel Colborn's favourite plants for chalky soil. Its fine qualities have also attracted the Royal Horticultural Society's attention and they have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM). Hailing from Japan, it makes an erect tree and is primarily grown for its stunning autumn foliage which turns orange, red and purple. Earlier in the year, its leaves are mid-green in colour and are complimented by pink flushed, white flowers in late spring, followed by red flushed, yellow fruit.
