Foliage:

sylvatica ‘Purple Fountain’ (purple weeping) Round purple leaves drench the cascading branches of this specimen tree. An upright form with a defined leader gives this tree an extreme columnar shape. Slow growing to 25’  high by 15’ wide.

sylvatica ‘Roseo-marginata’ Stunning variegated foliage of purple/pink, green and white, particularly in spring on understory trees that typically grow to 30’ tall. Yellowish green flowers bloom in April-May but are not showy. No serious insect or disease problems. Variegated foliage may scorch in hot afternoon sun, some afternoon shade is best.
