An excellent choice for narrow spaces. Crimson Spire® is most useful as a reliable privacy screen where space is limited. The lovely, dark green foliage turns to spectacular shades of red in autumn on this columnar shaped tree. The leaves will turn brown and many will persist through the winter.
This is a strong wooded tree that grows moderately fast. Crimson Spire® will withstand high winds much better than softer wooded narrow trees. The leaves are thick and lustrous and don't seem to be prone to insect infestation. A long lived tree that will provide many years of enjoyment.
Available in either a low-branched form or with the branching higher up.
Hardy to -30°F
Maximum Elevation: 6,000 ft.
