One of the darkest (purple) foliar shows, does not fade to green in summer heat like prairiefire.However the blossoms are such a deep color as to blend in with the foliage.The fruit is small 1/2" or less and clings to the plant, offering winter color until the birds eat the fruit. This tree is usually grafted to dwf root stock, but can be found with semi-dwf stock if desired. Rarely winter kills even with the wind blowing down from Canada. The petals could blow off early in late spring storms cutting the "show" short.
