A low-branching, dwarf tree with a delicate, weeping form. The foliage holds its beautiful crimson color throughout summer and can turn bright scarlet in autumn. Sun-tolerant in cooler regions, where sunlight intensifies the foliage color. Site in a bright dappled shade setting elsewhere. Well-suited for use as a container specimen. Deciduous.
