A very useful dense form with a 15' tall, broadly columnar to vase-shaped habit and splendid fall color: rich hues of orange, gold, purple, pink, and red! It can be planted as a brilliant focal point, a tall deciduous hedge to block out the overbearing apartments next door, or just to vary the form in your garden and add theatrical color in fall. Nice, dense shelter for birds, its "twiggage" is dense enough to screen even in winter. Tiny, deep red flowers bloom on bare stems in late winter/early spring.

Mature size: 15 feet tall & 10 feet wide in 10 years (ultimately up to 40 feet tall & 20 feet wide)

Minimum temperature: -30° F
