A small deciduous tree, sometimes branching quite low, giving it a shrubby look, with palmate green leaves made up of oval-shaped leaflets. Its ultimate height and spread are no more than 5m. The flowers are yellow-flushed with pink grouped in an upright 'candelabra'-style in late spring and early summer.
