Product Description

Take your landscape's look to the next level with Emperor I Japanese Maple. Imagine the deep purple foliage adding depth to the palette above your border's spring pastels. It'll keep that color going strong through summer, which is brilliant above the hot, bright tones of your summer flowers. Then, as the temperature cools, the leaves turn to scorching crimson red, the perfect accent to an autumn scene. It also adds a graceful element to you garden because the lobed leaves with 5-7 points look delicate and soft. Emperor I is one of the showiest Japanese Maples we've seen, but it's also a strong and dependable performer. It'll hold its color in shade and isn't likley to burn in sun. It's a beautiful specimen, perfect for curb appeal in the front yard, creating a focal point above a garden bed or energizing a small garden. It's impressive, but not high maintenance--little to no pruning or training needed to make it look great. Emperor I compares favorably to the most prevalent Japanese Maple you're probably used to seeing, Bloodgood, because it produces a brighter red and buds out about two weeks later. So if you want something that's a little different, and something of an upgrade on what you see in the neighborhood, we suggest Emperor I Japanese Maple. Acer palmatum 'Emperor I'
