Here is one of the best landscape trees on the market. It is easy to grow in most conditions and beautiful through all four seasons. Light green foliage emerges in spring and is followed by large, white camelia-like flowers in summer. Fall brings bold red and orange foliage. Finally, the leaves drop and expose the exfoliating bark on mature growth; new growth shines a beautiful deep red all winter long.
