A stunning tree for the winter garden. Tiny white flowers open from deep pink buds on mild autumn days, continuing to bloom sporadically throughout the winter. The wand-like branches clustered with flowers are useful for cutting and taking indoors. An excellent small tree for a sunny garden.

Garden Care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker. Cut back any dead, diseased or branches which cross to healthy wood.
