This unique small tree lives up to its name! Peve Starfish features burgundy leaves with downwardly rolled leaf edges, making each leaf resemble a purple starfish. The foliage begins the year, a bright brick red. This darkens in summer, to provide a burgundy backdrop to continued red new growth. The colour crescendo ends in fall, in a blaze of crimson.
