amasing colour- will this one grow into a tree or is it a short type?

Hi Nerja, this is C. 'Red Star' - i think they can go full size, but slow growing. not 100% sure to be honest, i have'nt seen one bigger than about 4-5ft but the do grow a trunk - how big it will get? your guess is as good as mine.

Should grow normally size but don't be surprised if turns back to green after a while al the red ones do.
