This tree is often planted as a specimen plant, something to highlight in your yard because of it's unusual leaf color. In spring, the leaves start out a maroon and pink, then as the season progresses they turn to a green, with pink with a white edge. The leaves can burn or scorch in the afternoon sun so it is best planted where it can receive morning sun and afternoon shade. In fall the leaves turn a copper color.

A beautiful tree, but challenging to grow and keep beautiful in the Treasure Valley.
