    A decorative tree that provides year-round interest. It has peeling, glossy, mahogany-coloured bark and white flowers in late spring that are followed by cherry-like fruits. The rich green foliage turns yellow in autumn before it drops.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker. Cut back any dead, diseased or branches which cross to healthy wood.

      This is the most beautiful tree but it really does need to be grown in the ground. It can eventually grow to 10m x 10m and will need a lot of water and feedign to keep it happy. There are however other small trees that could be grown in large pots. I have attached a link below:-
