Red Rhapsody® Amur Maple

Acer tataricum subsp. ginnala 'Mondy'

Brilliant red fall foliage highlights this small, versatile, bushy tree. The wonderful bare-stemmed winter silhouette with smooth gray bark leafs out before other maples in spring, with heavily lobed, dark green foliage, followed by small, fragrant, yellow-white flower clusters. Excellent cold tolerance. Best fall color in cool northern regions.
