The trunk and branches have green and white striped bark, which from a distance in winter gives the tree a ghostly grey-white appearance. Bright green shallowly 3-lobed leaves, turning yellow in autumn. Pendant racemes of yellowish-green flowers in spring, followed by winged fruits.

Moist, well drained, fertile soil in sun or part shade. Prune if required, by removing dead or unwanted branches in late autumn to midwinter.

From seed.
