A wonderful specimen tree.  Exfoliating bark is rich brown to reddish brown, and as it gets older, turns to a cinnamon brown, which gives it seasonal interest.  It adapts to a variety of soils, but prefers well drained.  Because it likes full sun, it can be put in an open landscape.  A one of a kind tree.
