Large, handsome, vigorous, spreading, deciduous tree with conspicuous clusters of red-tinged- yellow flowers on bare stems in April, followed by outstanding deeply-lobed leaves opening bright red turning rich dark crimson then red, brown and orange in autumn. Dense foliage makes it excellent for screening.It is good for wildlife as it supports caterpillars, aphids and their predators e.g. ladybirds, hoverflies and birds. Many moths feed on the leaves and the flowers provide nectar for bees, and small mammals eat the seeds.

Br = Bare Root Plant

Bare-Root Plants

Bare-root plants are sold without a pot/soil around the roots. This is a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way of growing plants. To ensure the best plant health we do not store our plants in cold storage, but they are left in our field or plant beds until they are ready for packing or collection.

Items marked Br are bare rooted plants grown from cuttings and are typically 1-2 years old.


Bare rooted plants are only available when the plants are dormant (typically from late November to March).

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.
