Small and multi-stemmed, this variety can be used as a shrub or small tree. Foliage has red tinges when young and matures to a shiny dark green, with autumn foliage providing a colourful display of orange, red and maroon. Stunningly beautiful and free-flowering, masses of violet purple flower trusses appear from summer through to autumn. Bark provides further interest as it peels, creating a mottled effect on the trunk. Relatively hardy, this variety is resistant to powdery mildew and will tolerate periods of dryness once established.
