The 5-lobed, nicely coloured leaf has a dark green surface and a red-purple underside. Because of its dark colour, preferably applied on a light site. The wings of the winged nutlets have a light pink hue.
'Atropupureum' works well as in parks, avenue tree or a large garden and in industrial areas. As the tree is sea wind resistant, it is also planted along the coast. The tree does not require much from the soil and is not sensitive to strong winds.
