Superb autumn colour on a slender tree! This tree, native to north east America, is perhaps best known for its spectacular autumn colour - produced even in Ireland where our climate tends to be less favourable to this phenomenon. Looking something like a maple, this tree can grow to 18m, but will only grow 2m wide. It grows well in moist, even water-logged soil, but can grow equally well in drier soils. The best autumn colour is produced in full sun and slightly acidic soil. An unusual, slender tree. 7ft tall plants. Only available in our Dunboyne shop. Although generally in stock, they may be sold out at the time of your visit.
