One of the loveliest double whites. Wide-spreading mounded semi-weeping form, open and picturesque. A beautifully shaped tree with an interesting curvy branch structure you can see right through. Magnificent in bloom. Pale apricot-pink buds open to small white slightly cupped long-stemmed starlike flowers. The red flower stems add a reddish cast to the tree in bloom. The whole tree appears draped with foliage and flowers like a million stars in a deep green sky. Small ¼" yellow-gold fruit.
