This small ornamental tree is truly striking, featuring blue-green leaves that contribute a luxurious texture to the neat form. The leaflets are sharply toothed, extending almost to the base, and the autumnal transformation is captivating as the foliage transitions to yellow and ultimately to red.

The large clusters of fruit boast a deep, rich golden hue, creating a remarkable spectacle, whether against the backdrop of the still-blue-green leaves or during the transition from yellow to red.

Proven to be exceptionally hardy, this selection serves as a valuable small tree, offering superb seasonal interest. From its blooming period in spring to the vibrant leaf colours in summer and autumn, the attractive fruits and finally the sturdy shoots overed in grey, hairy buds in winter, it consistently captivates throughout the year.
