A game changer for PNW native plant enthusiasts. 'Pacific Fire’ was selected for its red twigs that fade to a softer yellow-orange on the older branches. As with Sango kaku bright coloring is more pronounced in young trees and new growth. Light green leaves turn golden-yellow and blushed orange in full sun early in fall. This small tree is a great choice for any landscape large or small. A Great Plant Picks™ selection.
