Very attractive, reliable form similar to 'Dissectum Atropurpureum' with finely-cut, lobed, reddish-purple leaves, retaining their colour into autumn.
Moist, well drained, fertile soil in sun or part shade. Needs a position sheltered from cold winds and late frosts, which can damage emerging foliage. Prune if required, by removing dead or unwanted branches in late autumn to midwinter.
By grafting in late winter, or bud-grafts in late summer.
