The Highlights

    • Unmatched ornamental value
    • Colour changing, heart shaped foliage, and long yellow catkins from winter to spring
    • Buttery yellow foliage appears in spring, turning green throughout the summer before turning yellow again in the Autumn
    • Most popular for its contorted branches that twist and corkscrew in spirals providing year-round interest
    • Particular interest in winter, when leaves do not disguise the interesting form
    • Small in stature, grows no more than 4x4m
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE
