Please could you help with the identification of this tree. I live in the East Bay of San Francisco. This is an landscaped ornamental tree, the upperside of the leaves is a dark burgundy the undersides lighter green, it has bract like flowers that dry on the tree.
Would it survive in the NW near Seattle?
Sorry I've had difficulty uploading the images (despite resizing)
The leaves are narrow and about 2" long, alternating along the branch.

I would need to see a photo of the tree in order to identify it. You can email it to: info at arborday.org

Define Bract like flowers a bit more, if you can.

Are the leaves somewhat elliptical? Like oval, with a point? Blut tipped?
