Another seedling from Schwedleri, the fast growing Deborah comes from Canada and makes a large tree with a rounded form.
Introduced in the 1970s, the spring leaves are bright red, gradually turning to dark green.
When the second flush appears there is a superb contrast between the red and green foliage.
It does well on most soil types, tolerates air pollution and resists drought.
The leaves have a distinctive wavy margin and colour to a rich orange / yellow in the autumn.
Most suitable for parks, verges and large gardens.
Mature height: 20m+
