Quick Overview:

Glowing Embers is not just another Japanese maple. It’s an award-winning selection from Dr. Michael Dirr’s plant evaluation program at the University of Georgia, chosen for its vigorous growth rate, brilliant fall color, and adaptability to a wide variety of southern landscape conditions. Unlike many Japanese maples that require shade and moist, organic soils, Glowing Embers Japanese Maple thrives in full sun and tolerates drought better than most trees in it class.

Out of stock


Aptly named, Glowing Embers Japanese Maple provides a kaleidoscope of color in fall as the leaves fade from green to purple, flourescent orange, or yellow, much like the ever-changing and mesmerizing embers of a wood fire. The color sequence of each leaf varies, and a single branch may display four distinctly different colors at the same time. Unlike other Japanese maples that are grafted onto a rootstock, Glowing Embers Japanese Maple is called a"c1ollol"selection, which means that it is propagated from cuttings and is not grafted onto a rootstock.
