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.
