Purple-black winter foliage, cut like a leaping martial arts figure, motivated Ken to use this name. Spring color is magnificent, with coral tinted flowers and leaves well marked with black. This is an improvement over older forms that had to mature to show coloration. Nice bronzing in fall. Bronze Award winner at Plantarium '00. Winner of the Medaille d'Argent – one of the highest awards at Courson in '99.
