outstanding and very cold-hardy National Arboretum selection with pale-pink
flowers. It typically forms a multistemmed tree 25- to 45-feet-high.
The mottled bark is like the native Madrone Tree, smooth and dark, reddish-brown.
Its fall foliage is dark-orange to dark-red. This tree can grow seven
feet in one year. Place it at least 25' away from a structure or
overhead powerlines. Grows best in full sun to half-day sun and needs
a deep soaking every 2 weeks during a dry summer once established.
(Feed with 7 Agriform
2-year fertilizer tablets at the bottom of the hole at planting time.)
