'Shirotae has light green new foliage which darkens as it matures before turning fiery shades of orange and red in autumn. This tree has slightly curved branches that are shrouded with cup-shaped, scented white flowers in mid-spring. This tree has a uniquely beautiful shape as its spreading branches reach out to form an almost 'flat topped' crown. The 'Shirotae' is a good tree for a small to medium sized garden and will become a real focal feature of your garden.
