Heavily curled green leaves give an interesting texture to this compact, shrubby tree. Foliage becomes purple-red with orange-red patterns in fall, is most intense in full sun, and is less likely to sunburn than other varieties. Popular for bonsai, as a container specimen, and in small gardens. Highly sculptural form improves with age.
