Red Emperor Japanese Maple

'Red Emperor' sets a new standard for red-leaf Japanese maples. The new growth is deep purple-red and it holds that color exceptionally well throughout the summer. Fall foliage turns a rich crimson. It leafs out about two weeks later than other Japanese maples giving it the benefit of less spring frost damage. Graceful form and brilliant color, works well as a focal point in the urban landscape.

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!

Paul

Very quick with estimating, designing and completing our work. Final total even came in a little less. Guys worked fast and hard and did an amazing job on our flower gardens and planting new trees. Friendly, fast and efficient workers! I would highly recommend Zehr's Flowers and Landscaping!!!!
