'Red Dragon' is a compact, slow-growing, dissected form that typically matures over time in an upright-pendulous mound to 4-6' tall. Seven-lobed leaves are deeply cut to the leaf base. Leaves emerge bright cherry red in spring, mature to burgundy red in summer before finally changing to crimson red in fall. Leaves retain good color throughout the growing season. Leaf sub-lobes are deeply toothed. Purple leaf stalks. Dissected leaves reportedly resemble the claws of a dragon, hence the cultivar name. This graceful, small tree creates a stunning focal point or accent for lightly shaded gardens, patios, and entryways, and is ideal for containers
