Beautiful as they are, a weeping form is not always what you need. For an upright form, choose the Emperor Japanese Maple, which is small tree growing to around 15 feet, known for its beautiful red foliage. In spring the leaves emerge a rich purple-red and that color is held all summer, unlike other red-leaf Japanese Maples which can fade to a dark green. This summer color is followed by a spectacular fall display of vibrant scarlet.

  • Upright form with brilliant foliage color
  • Spectacular fall scarlet shades
  • Fast-growing for early maturity
  • Great in areas prone to spring frosts
  • Happy in shade under larger trees

This tree is faster-growing than many other Japanese Maples, so it will not be long before you have a good-sized tree to grace your yard with the special beauty of these rare and sought-after specimens. Especially in colder northern areas, the late appearance of leaves in this variety gives protection from spring frosts that can damage other Japanese Maples.
