Deborah’ is a large, deciduous tree with an oval, conical/pyramidal habit. Noted for its bright red emerging leaves that change over a 4-6 week period to deep maroon and finally dark green; the leaves display a wrinkled appearance with crinkled and undulating margins. In autumn, the leaves turn yellow-orange to bronze. The small, yellow flowers appear in clusters before the foliage in spring and although small, have an ornamental value. Tolerant of deer, poor soils and harsh environmental conditions, ‘Deborah’ should be grown where vigorous surface roots will not be a problem. An excellent specimen or avenue tree.
