Description

Available Autumn 2017 A beautiful tree which was first raised in 1906 at the Lorberg nursery in Germany and remains an uncommon, much sought after plant.

One of our customers who gardens in Finland close to the arctic circle finds this species completely hardy! A very hardy, ornamental small tree.
