“Certainly a fantastic nursery plant in spring with a kaleidoscope of color dominated by yellow-gold and intense pink, it, with its small stature and rugged nature, is a superb plant  for modern gardens too. Coral Sun doesn’t stand out only in the spring because in winter the twigs are golden yellow. We really like this tree.”
