This rather dense dissectum has pale yellowish-green leaves in the springtime. In summer it's green, but a light refreshing green. In the fall it's boldly gold-yellow. The tree tends to grow more broad than tall and has a mounding habit. Mine is in a protected area of the garden in bright filtered light. Vertrees mentions "it needs protection from the hot afternoon sun" and mine appears to be flourishing with this protection. This photo was taken May 5, 2007, and I've had this cultivar in the same place in my garden for 2 years now.
