This is a good deciduous tree for smaller yards or street planting as it enjoys being planted in turf. It has handsome dark green leaves that turn yellow, red or orange in fall. Clusters of white flowers appear in April or May, followed by red or orange berries that birds adore. Best planted in full sun to partial shade, well-drained soil with humus added, and water deeply once every 7-10 days. Can get sunscald and fireblight. Not temperature sensitive or prone to disease, and does not need protection.
