A very beautiful, small, North American tree that is attractive in all seasons, even in winter when its spreading crown of fine shoots makes a satisfying, dense, shrubby shape. In March the branches erupt with a froth of star-shaped flowers in lax conical heads, just as the coppery pink young leaves unfold - in summer these are yellowish green, but later turn scarlet and crimson. In July the tree is studded with dark red berries which become purple-black as they ripen. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit.It makes a fantastic colourful hedge.

Pleased with purchase
The shrubs arrived looking healthy, they were well packed with no damage on arrival. I planted them several weeks ago in late autumn and they are already showing signs of developing buds, so I am very pleased and look forward to seeing how they grow over the spring and summer months. I would not hesitate to use Beechwood Nurseries again, as there is a great choice at good prices and the ordering process is easy.
