With a dense, spreading, cascading form, this plant will weave its way through your landscape with a highly textured brush featuring its large, broadly dissected threadlike foliage that begs to be touched. This hard to resist foliage emerges in early spring bright red then matures to a stunning, substantial purple-garnet red color in the summer. Finally, the color show comes to an autumn climax with a piercingly warm orange color that is definitely one-of-a-kind. This combination of unmatched form and unmatched foliage color has made 'Garnet' one of the most decorated trees in horticulture including winning the Royal Horticulture Society's Award of Garden Merit.
Will grow in shade or sun, but best leaf color appears when planted in partial shade. Prune in winter to remove damaged branches. Fertilize in spring with a general fertilizer
