One of the most vigorous of the laceleafs, this dense, cascading tree displays large, rich, purple-red leaves that hold their color well through summer. In fall, bright-red foliage glows against the lowering sun, and in winter, the distinctive tree shows off bare branches and a silhouette typical of a red dissectum.(Iseli Nursery)
