Valued for its exceptional bright green variegated foliage with prominent golden yellow margins, this small tree has a slender, upright form when young that broadens with age. Masses of creamy flower-like bracts arrive in early spring. The gently rippled leaves develop flashes of bright pink in summer, turning brilliant red by fall. Deciduous. (Source: Monrovia)
