Outstanding, reliable, bright orange to deep, reddish purple fall color - even in warmer climates. A tall form with a dense, rounded crown and large, medium green leaves in spring and summer. Foliage is held on the tree later into fall than with most cultivars. A superb choice as a high profile shade tree for larger landscapes. Deciduous.
Provide slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Best color in full sun, but tolerates light shade. Water deeply and regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; prefers regular moisture but tolerates drier soils. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
