Do you know this plant? If not, you should. It is just becoming more widely available in the nursery trade. It’s a small ornamental tree that reaches about 15-20’ in height. When young, the bark is a rich brown and exfoliating and a pretty tan in its adult years. It flowers in late summer with dainty white panicles of sweetly scented flowers. The real show, however, comes a bit later, when the sepals, after the flower falls off, turn a rich rosepurple, thus extending the beauty of the tree.
