This variety is regarded as having darker foliage than the popular 'Forset Pansy'.
It tends to have a denser habit and is more heat and drought tolerant.
Also the dark purple, glossy leaves are smaller, thicker, and glossier.
This lovely tree has an upright vase-shaped growth habit.
In spring, masses of bright pink, tiny pea-like flowers are produced along the stems.
It is a small deciduous tree to approximately 4-5 metres.
