shy bloomer producing a few white flowers (flat topped cymes), few flowers few equals fruit
simple, opposite, three lobed, green with fair fall color of weak reds and yellow, seems to drop all the leaves at one time
has lots of straight upright branches very twiggy as compared to the species
reaches 5-6 feet by 5-6 feet, compact dense upright form
only occasional pruning, I have seen it split in center, because of snow load

I have used this many times in landscape plantings because of it's compact growth habit. When pruned every year there are few if any flowers. The only time I have observed flowers and fruit is when the plants are mature, large and not regularly pruned.
