Grows to become a small tree with a compact spherical crown. Depending on the site of the graft it attains a height of 3.5 - 5 m. The crown grows to approx. 1.5 - 2 m wide and at a later age has a tendency to droop somewhat. The bark turns from grey to dark reddish-brown; young twigs have a silver-grey colour. The fairly small dark green leaves are ovoid to obovate and measure 3-5 cm. In the autumn they turn bronze-red to orange-yellow. The tree produces white single flowers in April. They grow in bundles of 2 to 4. The round red fruits, measuring approx. 1 cm, do not appear very often. The tree requires fertile and humid soil.
