Description

Be dazzled by the the huge, deep, dark fuschia-pink flower bracts that will light up the rounded small tree in June. Bred at Rutgers University, this precocious tree grows quickly and blooms as a very young tree showing off brilliant color almost right away in the landscape. Superb burgundy fall foliage color and large, bird attracting fruit add to its glory.
