This hybrid maple allows those in hot climates to enjoy deep purple foliage that was previously difficult to maintain under stressful hot (and cold) conditions. Perfectly at home in Western Garden zones 1-9 and 14-23, it is has a naturally elegant upright oval standard shape with a mature height of 30’ and spread of 25’. This medium size makes it an excellent choice for many inland and intermountain landscapes, requiring only full sun with medium water needs. The leaves have the classic maple shape and turn reddish bronze in the autumn before falling to the ground and calling it a day for the winter. At Boething Treeland Farms, we currently grow these in 15 gallon containers.
