This is a beautiful deciduous medium sized tree suitable for Avenues, Shade, and as a feature tree to add some bright colour into any medium to large Landscape.

Sunbursts show begins at the start of spring with vibrant yellow, fern like foliage appearing on slightly weeping branches which softens in the summer to lime green with only the newest growth still appearing a brilliant yellow. In autumn the foliage returns to gold before dropping revealing a beautiful framed tree for winter and allowing in the winter sun.

Sunburst can grow to 12mts tall and up to 8mts wide making it a great shade tree. It prefers full sun to maximise the foliage colour but will grow in part shade. It will grow in most soil types but likes fertile, well drained soil.

Sunburst is frost hardy and drought tolerant once established.
