´Tortuosa Purpurea´ is a variety with year round appeal. It is a small tree with uniquely contorted trunk and branches. These branches weep slightly at the tip, and are covered with spectacular, deep purple leaves. The beautiful foliage forms an irregular, low umbrella shape, which is very useful near water features, or elsewhere in the garden, where it can provide a perfectly matched contrast to lighter hues.The contorted charistic provides outstanding winter.
