A deciduous tree with attractive peeling bark, 'Flamingo' has been selected for the brilliant salmon-pink color of the newly emerging spring foliage. Leaves then pale to creamy-yellow and mature to green. Please note that this process is dependent on light and heat levels and may not occur if forced in a house or greenhouse. Fragrant white flowers are clustered in drooping panicles in midsummer followed by winged fruit. All parts of the tree are aromatic, and the flowers are attractive to insects.
