A delightful small tree, the wavy edged deep green leaves have an attractive red margin to them when young. In autumn the foliage turns to breath-taking colours of rich crimson, orange and yellow. During late winter and early spring clusters of small crimson flowers appear. Older trees develop attractive peeling bark similar to a London Plane tree. An easy to grow tree that usually develops naturally into a multi-stemmed specimen up to 8 metres.
