Bright coral - as a tree.

Description

This tree of abour 4 m high is particularly original from spring to autumn.
The spring foliage is of an intense coral. It then takes on a light green tone, contasting with the bright pink to red stalks. Like with the other varieties of soap trees, they are composed and elegantly shaped. The new summer shoots are also coloured, but less flamboyant.
Once the tree is well established, the long yellow grapes of flowers in July are fragrant and very melliferous. They are followed by attractive coral-rose fruit capsules.
Finally the colour of the foliage turns yellow, then orange in autumn.
Grown as small decorative tree or as a bushy shrub,  'Coral Sun' must be planted in a wind-sheltered spot.

Care

Lighten the biggest branches, to favour the growth of new, couloured shoots.
