An elegant, deciduous variegated shrub or small tree. This is perhaps one of the prettiest and daintiest of small trees for the garden, with long, slender arching branches, richly clothed in small, 5-lobed leaves of the most bright white, cream and green variegation. Not only is it a tough shrub, it’s one of exceptional beauty and should be more widely grown. Will thrive and maintain its variegation in shade, shining even in dry shade where other plants struggle to grow.
Grow in well-drained soil in sun or shade.
