This small, multi-stemmed, deciduous tree produces a spectacular display of vibrant fuchsia red flowers. The clusters of flowers appear over a long period from late summer through until mid-Autumn. It has a beautiful growth habit with dark green leaves which offer further interest after the flowering period when they change to orange before falling. Bark is a rich, brown colour which reveals a lighter coloured underbark, creating a mottled effect as the tree matures.
