Quick Overview:

This is an upright, strong grower, with a seven-lobe dissectum leaf form and orange winter bark color on newer growth. New leaves emerge orange and turn green in summer, with orange petioles. New growth in summer looks like orange candles against the mature leaves. Fall color is bright red and orange.

Description

Easily grown in moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Grows well in sandy loams. May be grown in full sun in the northern parts of its growing range, but prefers some part afternoon shade in the southern parts of its growing range. New foliage may scorch in full sun locations in hot summers areas, particularly if soils are not kept consistently moist. Mulch helps retain soil moisture and keep roots cool. Avoid hot and dry sites. Site in locations protected from strong winds. Pruning is best kept to a minimum, but if needed should be done in late fall to mid winter. Spring or summer pruning often results in significant bleeding.
