With upright, spreading branches pink buds emerge and from these the single blush white flowers of between 3 and 5cm wide follow before the foliage in the spring. They hang in clusters of 5 or 6 and have a subtle almond fragrance.
The leaves emerge a coppery colour towards the end of the flowers which create a beautiful contrast to the shiny, black fruits. They are serrated on the margins and deep green in colour turning to red-orange in Autumn.
Will grow between 8 – 10metres and a span of upto 5 metres
