Grace, fall color, and hardiness! The refined character of a Japanese Maple can now be enjoyed to a zone 4 hardiness range! This hybrid selection, developed in Madison, Wisconsin, by Professor Emeritus Ed Hasselkus, originated from seed of the tough and cold-hardy Korean maple, but most resembles its A. palmatum parent. Graceful, deeply incised leaves emerge bronze, are green in summer, then glow with bright orange-red to deep red color in fall. Upright when young, spreading when mature, will eventually grow to approximately 20 feet tall by 24 feet wide. A choice tree for courtyards and gardens where the desire for a Japanese Maple has been thwarted by zone 4 conditions. Grown on own roots.
Acer triflorum selection with very light buckskin tan, beautifully exfoliating bark that extends even to the smaller branchlets. Bushy, finely textured branch and growth structure. We have grown these on their own roots. Gold to yellow fall color. Acer triflorum, also known as Three-Flowered Maple, matures to a small tree with a rounded crown.
