Deciduous, hardy and fast growing to 112m tall x 3m wide in 20 years with a strongly columnar habit. The deeply lobed, bright green, shiny leaves turn rich russet red in autumn and persist on the branches into winter.
A full sun position is best. Tolerant of heat, cold, wind and most soils.
Very well suited to Canberra's extreme climate. Great as a specimen, avenue or boundary planting, and handy where space is limited.
