Red Leaf (atropurpureum) 4-5'

Intolerant of exposed areas where high winds may stress the tree. In direct sun, leaves may become partially scorched. Otherwise....very easy to grow! It grows well as an understory tree (grows well under taller trees), tolerating fairly dense shade.

Growth Rate: Moderate to fast (12” to 24” / year)

Soil: Adaptable to a range of soil types once established, but will do best in a moist, well-drained soil. Use a compost/topsoil garden mix.
