Like the species, this is a small, often multi-stemmed tree, with a broad rounded crown, but this form has relatively large, heart-shaped leaves of rich reddish purple. It produces small deep pink flowers in spring and has a good autumn colour.

Moist, well drained, fertile soil in full sun or dappled shade, preferably in a reasonably sheltered position.

Specimen tree or woodland gardens.
