This hardy, medium-sized tree is truly distinctive. Heart-shaped leaves attract interest, changing from translucent bronze in spring, to summer green, to yellow and apricot-orange in autumn. Multi-trunked specimen trees with shaggy bark have eye-catching appeal. Throughout the seasons, it is among the most appealing of any hardy landscape tree. Dr. Mike Dirr names it his personal favorite. These liners are exceptional, with a strong central leader.
