Ruby Ridge is a gross palmatum--literally; the large leaves are coarse and rough looking and mean dark red; I love it. The stems and limbs are thick and heavy, but it is a very slow grower.

MATSUMURAE, red. Large leaves with very pointed 1" lobes cut back to the petiole of a rich dark purple color with green veins. Very different look on this strong, short plant.
