This is a grafted tree. The standard is usually between 5 and 7 feet tall. The top grows between 10 and 12 feet wide, but may be pruned to be a bit smaller and bushier. This tree provides great seasonal interest. The pink/red buds open to white flowers in the spring. In summer, the leaves are a deep green. In fall, the tree produces red fruit that clings on well into winter and the leaves are a nice yellow-orange. The shape of the top provides good winter interest as well. Sargent Tina also has an excellent resistance to most diseases. That fact, coupled with it's small size, makes it very valuable in the landscape.
