Some plants are described as having red flowers, but the term "red" used here in the cultivar name misinforms those who have not seen it in flower. Many firms list flowers as "fuchsia pink". It's certainly not blood-red but this selection is a distinctively much brighter pink than seedlings.
The heart-shaped leaves turn buttery yellow in fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The rough dark brown bark is not particularly outstanding but it is very distinct in the late fall thru the spring.
