The foliage of 'Capital' is dark green and glossy, and it turns shades of orange, red, and purple in the fall. The tree produces small white flowers in the spring that are followed by small, inedible fruit.
'Capital' is valued for its upright, space-saving growth habit and its ability to tolerate urban environments, including pollution, heat, and drought. It is often used as a street tree or as a vertical accent in gardens and landscapes.
An excellent choice for narrow, restricted areas, around car parks, along narrow medians in both the public and private domain. Luscious dark green foliage in spring which changes to reddish-purple in summer. Also has large white flowers during spring. Can even be espaliered if preferred.
