A dwarf red is highly desirable. An interesting cultivar was the first dissectum 'witches broom' to be discovered.
Has very finely disssected leaves which are half the size of typical dissectum leaves in the first year. Then they become even smaller with age! Gradually reducing to the size of a thumb nail.
Leaves emerge a red-orange in Spring quickly turning bronze-green for the summer. In fall turning orange to pink-red.
In the second growth spurt in summer, the new leaves contrast nicely with the older leaves.
After 10 years this tree is only 3 feet tall and wide making a rounded, densely twigged shrub! Needs wind protection for the first 3-4 years.
