I turned some several years ago. It was freshly cut. It was a light blonde color with some purple streaks running through it. I turned a lamp from it and made sure I highlighted the purple in it. Within a month all of the purple had turned a boring brown. I got some light checking in the wood as it dried and it smelled great while working with it. It was easy to work, especially green, but there was no appreciable grain pattern to it. If you can get it free or cheap, check it out. At worst, it’s firewood!
