Red Dragon Japanese Maple

Availability: Out of stock

The Japanese Maple Red Dragon, Acer pd. 'Red Dragon', will turn heads with its bold color, open branch system, and distinctive foliage!

Its vivid purple foliage holds well until it changes into an outstanding flaming scarlet in the fall.  It keeps its tremendous deep color in sun or shade, better than any other laceleaf maples.

A hardy and vigorous grower, (one foot per year) ‘Red Dragon’ has a dwarf growth habit, is well branched with a cascading mound, and reaches a height of 5-6 feet in 10 years.

‘Red Dragon’ does need some protection from cold wind and summer drought.   It thrives in moist well-drained soil, but can tolerate a variety of soil conditions.  Not drought tolerant, Red Dragon requires regular watering, especially in the first five years.

With its bold colors and unique foliage, this outstanding Japanese Maple ‘Red Dragon’ is a perfect choice for a small garden, rock garden, or as a container plant!
