I planted this tree in sandy soil in Chicago, then moved it to more clay soil in Winnetka. The tree has done well in both locations. In the sandy soil, the fall color was crimson, in the clay soil it's more of a russet color.

This cultivar is listed as 'Shinobuga oka' in the fourth edition of Vertrees, as well as 'Linearelobum' and about 7 others. Personally, I have seen what looks suspiciously like 'Koto no ito' as 'Scolopendrifolium'.
