Small tree with upright growing branches when young, spreading with maturity. Sometimes multi-stemmed and shrubby. Long pointed, sticky, shiny red leaf buds in winter. Glossy green serrated leaflets, colouring richly in autumn. White flowers in spring and large bunches of red berries in autumn.

Best in moderately fertile, moist, well drained soil, preferably neutral to acid, but quite tolerant of most reasonable conditions. Sun or light dappled shade. Grafted plants are less drought tolerant.
