Quick Overview:

‘Rotfuchs’ (translates from German to English as red fox) is commonly sold in the U.S. under the name of RED FOX. It is a purple-leaved cultivar. In spring, the leaves emerge deep burgundy-purple with contrasting yellow-green veining and tiny white marginal teeth. Leaves are especially attractive when backlit by sun. Leaf color fades to bluish green by mid-summer before finally changing to gold, orange and red in fall.

Description

Best grown in rich, moist, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Tolerates full sun, but has little tolerance for drought particularly when young. Best sited in a location protected from strong winds and hot afternoon sun. This is a dioecious tree (male and female flowers on separate trees).
