Crinkled deep green leaves pack tightly on stiff, vertical, heavily textured woody stems. Deciduous, the deeply fissured bark and sculptural form is worthwhile and intriguing in winter. Its foamy white spring/summer flowers are beautiful against the much darker leaves and might be the only thing to give its identity away. This is a fun plant with which to stump the chumps. Quickly gratifying, it will shoot up with some halfway decent soil. 12 ft tall x 4 ft wide.

Minimum temperature: -20° F
