Fireglow Japanese Maple

Acer palmatum 'Fireglow'

SKU
40036
Named for its luminescent purple-scarlet to crimson red fall colors, this selection is similar to the popular 'Bloodgood' but smaller in stature and with deeper red foliage persisting through summer. Vigorous and quite sun-tolerant, with a slow growing, upright habit. Outstanding garden or container accent specimen. Deciduous.
