A beautiful, multi-branched tree prized for its highly textural, colorful, peeling bark. An exceptional silhouette for night lighting. Provides striking winter interest. This versatile, highly heat tolerant tree thrives in riparian settings with high water tables and problematic low wet soils, yet adapts to mild drought when established. Deciduous.
