A very nice red-leaved linearlobum, maybe one of the best to hold its color into summer. The bark is a dark chocolate color and the leaves are larger than average for the linearlobums. This tree will produce a typical amount of more plamate growth on new and vigorous chutes, but the older leaves seem to thin-down very nicely. This tree stands about 5ft tall and has lended itself to being staked with a stong central leader. It is currently about 3ft. in width and is gracefully semi-pendulous. The lighter colored leaves are from 4/1/05, as is the backlit photo, and the darker leaves were obtained by exposure to full sun and taken 4/21/05. I will try to photograph the whole tree with an appropriate backdrop, as linearlobums photograph poorly from any distance besides close-up. I purchased this around the end of march 2005 and cannot say as to how old it might be.
