The main features of this cultivar are the umbrella shape and moderate speed of growth lead to the capacity to maintain a rounded, compact crown with only light pruning, in case of malformations. It adapts itself well to limited spaces on balconies, terraces, or in small gardens, but still requires its own area with a sunny or semi-shaded exposure.
The foliage displays a ruby red colour in spring, take on a darker tint in summer, and finally transform into an intense red in autumn – if appropriately exposed to sunlight. The leaves are well defined and jagged with deep veins and are carried slightly drooped.
To facilitate root growth this cultivar prefers soft, moist and well-drained terrain. Ensure enough water is present in the summer months to prevent desiccating leaves. Frequent flooding, however, especially in heavier terrain unsuited to this plant, is to be avoided as it can lead to fungus and necrosis.
Taking care of these plants is the only way to enjoy their beauty and elegance for a long time. Verify the need for an annual disinfestation to be carried out in the spring period (March-April), perform two annual fertilizations in spring and autumn, and perform a pruning in the autumn period (September-October)
