    A deciduous, often multi-stemmed tree, which makes a fine specimen in a sunny garden. In spring, the big, pinnate leaves emerge a bright salmon pink and gradually change colour to creamy yellow and later rich green in summer. The clusters of greenish white, cup-shaped flowers that appear in summer seem to dangle from the ends of the branches and are loved by insects. All parts of the plant are scented and the wood is often burnt in temples in Eastern Asia to infuse them with its delicate scent. The timber is also valuable for making furniture as it is very durable and easy to work with.

  • Garden care: In late spring or early summer after flowering lightly cut back any branches that spoil the symmetry of the plant and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. In autumn trim back lightly any branches that obscure the display of fruit.

Comments about Crocus Toona sinensis'Flamingo':

This tree has a lovely shade of pink leaves when it comes out in spring. Turning to green by summer. But it is very slow growing. As an experienced gardener gave it the best conditions. But still surprised at how very slow growing it is.

      Unfortunately we only supply a single stemmed Toona you could try searching on the RHS Plant finder to see who stocks it then you can call to see if they have a multi stemmed version. See link below
