This tree even looks good naked but in spring it's all dressed up with pale pink to white single blossoms that smother the branches. The tree forms a broad umbrella of green foliage in summer. Vivid autumn display. A must have! Plant in a sunny well drained spot for best results.
This tree was thought of as a species but is now thought to be an ancient hybrid of P.speciosa and P.subhirtella. No matter the origins it is a beauty. There are mass plantings in Washington DC and it is also a very popular street tree in Christchurch.
