Good question. It's new to me this year. It started coloring up in July and I took this picture yesterday. So we'll see how long it lasts.

Neat tree! I have an acer/cornus love fest going on in my yard just waiting for the magical acer/cornus beetle to come eat them all. If I did not I would order one of those NOW!

Its amazing how many cool trees are on the market. Its unfortunate that in many markets the generic plants dominant.

I had two separate nurseries tell me that no one buys trees anymore. They sell perennials and roses.

Thanks for sharing the pics. If you like season long gold check out 'Summer Gold'. Its a winner for sure.
