Discovered at Forestfarm this slow-growing deciduous tree, broadly conical, has a tropicalesque and blousy visage with cream variegation creating delightful variations on each 10 inch leaf. Its upright, conical, white floral racemes, in late spring, are likewise pretty and pale. A dark, coniferous background would show it off to its best advantage and give it some needed shade.
Mature size: 15- 20 ft tall in 10 years. Eventually 30-50 feet tall
Minimum temperature: -30° F
