This is a flashy crimson foliaged maple with dense upright branching. It has a compact growth habit with its large crimson leaves in summer turning to gold and orange in Autumn. Due to its compact size and stunning colour, this maple is highly suitable for smaller landscapes, particularly as a garden feature. Great foliage contrast and stunning colours throughout the year. A good selection for screening and for narrow sites. Prefers moist but well-drained soils. Is somewhat tolerant of poor soils, moderate heat and air pollution. A hardy tree, good for tough sites and is low maintenance once established. Foliage can burn in summer if planted in full sun.
