|Design Ideas||A striking accent tree with dozens of potential applications. Makes an outstanding focal point for close range flower inspection and long range overall visibility.

A superior small tree for country gardens against a dark evergreen or forested background. Size fits nicely into the front yard tree on smaller city lots.|
