This is a compact deciduous shade tree with dense foliage that reaches on 25’ in height and 15’ in width. Leaves emerge bright red but fade to a deep purple as they age. Ideal for smaller yards, it is somewhat drought tolerant and accepts most soil types. Much slower growing than ‘Crimson King’, it is very dense and narrow in shape. Give full sun and regular water to establish a healthy specimen. It makes a nice screen tree and looks well against light colored walls or companion foliage.
