DURA-HEAT is a somewhat smaller cultivar that features better creamy white bark color, better tolerance to summer heat, better insect and disease resistance and superior foliage to the species. It typically grows 30-40’ tall.

Salmon-pink to reddish brown bark exfoliates to reveal lighter inner bark. Leathery, diamond-shaped, medium to dark green leaves (1.5-3.5" long) with doubly toothed margins turn yellow in fall.
