Fantastic form on a great weeping tree that forms a smooth green mound of gracefully weeping branches. Beautiful deep green almost purple leaves cover this entire tree. Very, very old tree, native to Japan and China, but fossils found in North America tend to make us think it might be a very old native? Great medium sized, specimen tree. Loves full sun, but wants damp ft, so might be a good choice for a difficult area needing a big bang.
