Winter Characteristics:  Winter buds are large and wooly, and the branches have persistent fruit throughout the winter to spring. These grow to be 40' high to 15' wide.

 


Spring Characteristics: Spring buds appear fuzzy, and clusters of white flowers bloom quickly as spring arrives and temperatures warm up.
