Quick Overview:

Deeply divided leaves appear light green in spring. Foliage turns slightly darker for summer. In fall the real show starts with orange, red and even yellow making an appearance. White striations appear on the bark and become quite prominent when older. ‘Fascination’ is fast growing, forming a medium sized round topped tree with age. Young branches appear to be slightly pendulous on the ends giving the overall tree a mounding effect.

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. In the case of ‘Waterfall’, some staking may be required in order to achieve the best mounded or umbrella-like form.
