What a beautiful small tree this is for the garden, excellent for pollinators and birds – deep red berries held amongst beautiful deeply divided leaflets. I recently planted one in a rural garden border in Chesham – working with a client who has a deep connection to the surrounding nature her garden benefits from.
This is a great tree to have in any garden!
