  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil

    Very pretty feathery foliage of numerous olive-green leaflets cover this elegant tree and turn dark crimson in autumn. Creamy white flowers are followed by pendulous clusters of berries which fade from red to white as the season progresses. The berries last well into the winter, making this the perfect tree for the smaller garden.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
