Available on backorder

Also known as Golden Alder. Unlike the species, this is a slow grower. It does best in moist soil and semi-shaded areas. The young shoots and leaves emerge a golden yellow in spring which contrast beautifully with vivid red catkins that open to a pink / yellow. The catkins form as early as august and get better and better in colour and size throughout the winter. The bark and twiggy branches also turn orange during the winter. Good as a street tree and for parks and gardens. Mature height: 5-10m
