Moderate-growing deciduous tree to 15-20’ tall x 15-18’ wide. This vigorous, upright-growing variety features deeply-lobed light-green leaves with plum-tinged margins, which contrast wonderfully with its coral-colored juvenile branches, a color that intensifies in the cold of winter. Adding further appeal to this attractive variety is the golden-colored foliage tones that appear in fall.  Attractive in nearly any setting, but especially well-suited as a lawn, park or courtyard tree. Prefers regular watering in a well-drained soil, and thrives in a light sun to light shade exposure. Requires protection from hot afternoon sun in warmer inland climates, and may experience leaf-scorch in areas prone to strong winds.
