This broadleaf, evergreen tree has tiered, horizontal branches and changing seasonal bark colors. Leaves are held so the inner bark shows, and it glows with chartreuse in spring and summer, then mellows to yellow in winter. New glossy, leathery leaves emerge rich-green, later take on bronze highlights and go light-green in winter. Unassuming, petal-less flowers on erect racemes radiate like the spokes of a wheel and account for the common name, Wheel Tree. This rare, small, slow-growing tree needs fertile, moisture-retentive soil. Originally from Japan, Korea, and Taiwan.
