While small, they exude an understated elegance against the backdrop of vibrant green foliage.
During the summer, its leaves present a robust matte green hue, featuring 5-7 shallow lobes and a heart-shaped base. As autumn approaches, it undergoes a spectacular transformation turning to rich oranges, coppery bronzes and vivid reds. Notable, the yunnanensis exhibits a remarkable resilience to scab and mildew, ensuring a stunning autumnal showcase irrespective of its environment.
Adding to its allure, the tree produces radiant red fruits, providing additional interest well into the winter months.
