This four season delight is John Barbour's favorite flowering tree. The pure white flowers of China Snow (Southern Type) smother this tree in late April creating a stunning show. The round to oval-rounder, thick summer leaves are glossy and green giving way to a creamy yellow fall display. On older trees the furrowed bark accentuates the attractive outline of curved trunks throughout the winter months. All this in a durable and adaptable package! We also offer this tree as a single stem (std).
