Acer palmatum ‘Bloodgood’
Delicate spring foliage that emerge wine-red to burgundy-plum and turn vibrant crimson red before shedding to the ground. As the leaves fall they expose the artistic spreading growth habit of the trunk and branches. Grows to be 15 – 20 feet tall.
Acer palmatum ‘Sangokaku’
Known for its brilliant red-coral bark, this Maple has deeply cut pale green leaves with a pinkish hue that warm up to a soft yellow in the fall. Grows to be 15 – 25 feet tall with an upright growth habit and a non-invasive root system. An excellent subject for patios or walkways.
Acer palmatum ‘Fireglow’
Named after its luminescent purple-scarlet to crimson red fall colors, ‘Fireglow’ is similar to ‘Bloodgood’ but smaller in stature, only growing to be around 6 – 10 feet tall. This sun-tolerant Japanese Maple is a wonderful choice for smaller courtyards or containers.
Acer palmatum ‘Osakazuki’
A superb small specimen tree known for its brilliant color and gracefully branched stems. Its deeply lobed, bright green leaves begin olive-orange in the spring, turning a vivid crimson in the fall. This 20 – 25 foot tall Maple thrives in dappled shade.
Acer palmatum ‘Purple Ghost’
‘Purple Ghost’ has magnificent ruffled deep purple-red leaves with dark prominent maroon veins that turn vibrant garnet in the fall. This slow growing 15 feet tall Maple is densely branched with an upright spreading canopy that adds a trilling element to the landscape.
Acer palmatum ‘Shishigashira’
Uniquely curled green leaves give an interesting surface to this compact, shrubby tree. The leaves become reddish-purple with orange-red patterns in fall. Shishigashira is less likely to sunburn than other varieties. As this tree ages, its highly sculptural form improves.
