Beautiful pyramidal maple with a relatively carefree growth habit, narrower than others, making it an excellent large shade tree for more compact landscapes. Highly adaptable, pest and disease-free, and resistant to leaf chlorosis. Dark green, heat resistant foliage turns a brilliant red in early autumn. Excellent cold hardiness. Deciduous.
