Japanese Maple - Trompenburg
The Japanese Maple Trompenburg, Acer p. 'Trompenburg', is a very fast growing Japanese maple and one of the most beautiful maples in the world!
It has a unique, dragon paw-shaped leaf and a naturally beautiful structure. This tree's leafstalks are red and in the spring the leaf color is a dark purple, sometimes appearing brown or chocolate. It turns redder as summer begins, but holds its beautiful color that lasts well into late summer.
The foliage becomes a brilliant crimson red in fall; leaf edges roll down, giving it a finger-like effect.
‘Trompenburg’ performs as well as any of the Japanese maples when it comes to heat tolerance. It tolerates full sun in the South, and prefers average, medium, well-drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system.
A classic small specimen or accent, ‘Trompenburg’ offers a great contrast to green-leaved plants!
