Gloriously large and glossy leaves are like paddles of colour, fluttering in the breeze and waving back at you. They’re a fresh and vibrant green in spring and summer, full of vitality and energy. Come Autumn, they take on tones ranging from orange to purple, as they add some welcome richness to grey days. The upright form is suited well to avenue and street plantings, where this deciduous tree will grow to 8 x 4 m.
