ℹ Japanese Maples are easily one of the most beautiful specimens to decorate your landscape with! The stunning Emperor One Japanese Maple tree (Acer palmatum 'Wolff') is indeed the cream of the crop! This highly ornamental tree has absolutely gorgeous color, with rich, lustrous foliage emerging in purple-red and plum hues in spring, transitioning to deep red in summer and finally fire red in fall! The color saturation is truly a wonder to behold! The Emperor One or 'Red Emperor' as it is sometimes called, is slower to leaf out in the spring than other species of Japanese Maples. This means that it isnt as susceptible to spring frost damage as other varieties can sometimes be. Emperor One gives the effect of a glowing lantern when the sun hits it from behind and is one of the few varieties of Japanese Maple that grow well in full sun or part shade. This adaptable tree is easy to grow and maintain. There is no need to prune this tree. This Japanese Maple should be treasured for its natural, unique, and beautiful growth.
