A thicker-leaved cultivar of the "Ghost Series." Signifiacantly more sun-tolerant without strong verigation or reticulation as seen on in other "Ghosts." Likey a medium sized upright plalmatum at maturity. In spring leaves are red in color with deep black or dark purple veining. Later in the season, leaf color turns to deep purple with the same veining. Leaves have a somewhat leathery texture and green iridescence on the underside. A relatively large leaf with thick toothed lobes. A truly unique cultivar with good seasonal appeal. Seems to be quite hardy-sun and wind tolerant. One of my favorites! Specimen purchased from Greer Gardens, Eugene, Oregon. Frist photo of late summer color in predominantly shade and the second and third photos of late spring coloration in sun.
