  • Description

  • Notes

This plant is a broad-crowned tree with attractive foliage. The small medium green, deeply lobed leaves turn brillant orange-red to wine-red in fall. Small panicles of very fragrant, creamy white flowers emerge in the spring. A. ginnala can be grown as either a single or multi-stemmed tree. Its irregular growth habit creates an interesting silhouette. It will become chlorotic if planted in alkaline soils. It does best in full sun. -Fort Collins Nursery
