The Lady Sunshine Dove Tree is a very rare and coveted small tree, grown mainly for its spectacular foliage. The large, heart-shaped leaves have a very broad outline of pale yellow to near-white, with a jagged central area of dark green. This is a truly beautiful tree, growing slowly to 10 to 15 feet tall and 8 feet wide. It is perfect for a partially-shaded woodland garden or bed, in areas where rhododendrons and camellias grow well. In time it may produce the famous white flowers, like the wings of a dove, that this tree is named after.

  • Spectacular bold variegated leaves on an upright tree
  • Leaves are pale yellow with a jagged green center
  • The small flowers are hidden by large, pure-white fluttering bracts
  • Beautiful and rare specimen for a woodland garden
  • Needs moist, acidic soil

Choose a spot in partial shade for the Lady Sunshine Dove Tree, to protect the leaves for scorching. Some morning sun and afternoon shade is ideal, or the shade beneath deciduous trees. The soil should be moist, acidic and well-drained, with plenty of organic material added, and as mulch. It grows best in moderate climates like New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the Pacific Northwest and northern California.
