A graceful, mounding, dwarf tree with waxy, deep red bark and beautiful cascading branches. Deeply lobed foliage is a beautiful purple-red throughout the summer and turns bright red in the fall. An ideal accent for Asian-themed gardens. Well-suited for use as a container specimen. Deciduous.
Care:
Provide slightly acidic, well-drained soil; shelter from drying winds. Avoid harsh afternoon sun exposures in hot summer areas. Mulch to keep root zone cool. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply slow-release fertilizer in early spring.
Average Size at Maturity
Slowly reaches 6 to 10 ft. tall, 10 to 12 ft. wide.
Bloom Time
Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.
Design Ideas
Plant beside a stream or pond where its cascading branches will look superb. Use the extremely fine texture and reddish hue of its leaves to contrast areas of coarser green plants. Beautiful above a large rock or wall where the limbs can spill over. A great specimen plant for the woodsy landscape. Keep away from full sun, which can burn leaves.
