    Nevertheless, you should leave out the quotation marks as the trademark is not a cultivar.

    'Burgundy Jewel' is similar introduction.

    Ron,

    Thanks for the tip on the quotation marks. 'Burgundy Jewel' is a Peacedale Nursery introduction that holds it's color much better in the heat of the summer, even in full sun, unlike my 'JFS Purple' that is already washed out green. To be honest, in comparison, 'JFS Purple' doesn't quite deserve it's name thus far. Maybe when I see my tree in the fall or spring, I might change my tune.

    Tim

    Re: Trademark symbol

    Just for reference - if you wish to add the trademark symbol and you are using Windows, hold down the Alt key and type 0153 on the numeric pad. Like thisâ„¢.

    Interested to hear where it came from. I've grown a small one in a poor dry spot for a few years, another specimen that got planted where I got it from has grown much larger. Multiple large plants of the Schmidt intro were offered at a local garden center last year, I saw no obvious inferiority of coloration among these - if anything I was left with the impression that 'Burgundy Jewel' might be less well colored.

    A hot climate like yours would be better for causing such distinctions to become more clear.

    I do not have one of these but i do have a 'Burgandy Jewel' and i find it to have some outstanding color in the full sun. Here is a photo of Burgandy Jewel
