This is one showy ornamental tree that is sure to attract birds and butterflies too. The cultivar we sell, 'Krauter Vesuvius' is recognized for having the darkest foliage and for producing little to no fruit.

  1. Good small tree
    We needed a smaller tree for our entry way and this fit the bill. We got great color year round from the leaves, then in the early spring we have some beautiful blooms. This is a slow grower so buy one the size you are wanting it now, it'll take a while to grow.
