Lion Heart is supposed to be an upright red like the green Seiryu, but I have not seen that at all. It is definitely red and definitely dissected, but I don't find that it is nearly as upright as Seiryu. Michael Healy's photo shows the leaf perfectly.

Burgundy-red lace-leaf foliage (similar to Crimson Queen) ; a semi-upright (unusual in red lace-leafs) semi-weeping tree (to 10' tall x 6') a more commanding lion-hearted! presence in the garden. Sun-PSh/Med

DISSECTUM, red. This red dissectum is fairly upright in habit, compared to most dissectums, but still showing the characteristic mounding. Not as fast a grower as the green dissectums.
