Easily one of the most superb bark trees to be had, with polished rings of mahogany bark that exfoliate and become sunlit amber-orange shards in the evening light. The leaves are dark green and narrow, and the flowers, opening white from pink buds, bloom early- through mid-spring. But really, it's about the bark, 'bout the bark! This tree can defoliate with extended periods of heat above 90°. Grows to 20 x 20 feet.
Shippable 3 qt plants are 24" - 36" tall including pot.
Minimum temperature: -20° F
