|This is a semi-weeping, spreading, deciduous tree. Leaves are ovate, often lobed, dark green, up to 3 inches long. Red buds produce pale pink blooms, fading to white as flowers mature. Followed by red fruit approximately the size of a cherry.
This tree does well in most soil, but will be more attractive if fed peat and compost. 'Molten Lava' flowers deep red in bud opening to single white with red-orange fruit remaining firm into early December on a wide-spreading weeper 15 foot by 12 foot tall tree with attractive yellow bark in winter. This is a Lake County Nursery introduction.
