The reigning monarch of Japanese maples!

Japanese Maples are easily one of the most beautiful trees that you can buy to enhance your landscape and Emperor One Japanese Maple Tree (Acer pd. 'Emperor One') is the cream of the crop!

This exceptionally ornamental tree has gorgeous color that ranges throughout the year from rich plum purple to brilliant crimson red. Emperor One (Acer p. ‘Emperor 1’) or ‘Red Emperor’ as it is sometimes called, is later to leaf out in the spring than other species of Japanese Maples. This means that it isn’t as susceptible to surprise spring frost damage as others.

One of the great qualities of Emperor One is its beautiful leaves. They are exquisitely shaped and colored, but what makes them stand out is their almost translucent quality. Emperor One seems to be glowing from the inside like a lamp when the sun hits it from behind. You have to see it to understand it, and once you do you won’t forget it. Even pictures can’t capture this beauty.

The Emperor One Japanese Maple is a strong grower to 15 feet tall and wide, but can be pruned to any size. It will also thrive in a big container which will keep it naturally small. (If you want to keep it really small, you can prune it as an Emperor One Japanese Maple bonsai!)

Emperor One Japanese Maple holds its color in the shade, so put it by the front door or use it as a foundation planting. Uplight it for a truly striking garden statement. Your yard will look like you paid a king’s ransom for it (but we’ll keep your secret!). 

* Landscaper’s favorite
* Holds color in the shade
* Translucent leaves with outstanding color
