Japanese Maple - Fireglow
The Fireglow Japanese Maple, Acer p. 'Fireglow', is an impressive, vigorous, reliable tree that burns fire-red!
It has an upright tree to shrub shape with many slender dark red shoots. Reaching 6-10 feet, it makes an excellent garden or container plant.
'Fireglow' has leaves that are not as deeply divided as 'Bloodgood', but they have a deeper more intense wine-red leaf color that continues well into the heat of summer.
Since it does not get as tall or widespread as 'Bloodgood', it is ideal for those smaller tight spaces.
In early fall, the foliage becomes purple-red suffused with green.
It is easy to grow, and adapts to most conditions and likes well-drained, humus-rich soil; thrives well in hot, sunny conditions. It is best to feed it once a year with a slow release fertilizer.
'Fireglow' is so named because the sun can shine through the leaves for a blazing color accent!
