‘Purple Ghost’ is a very striking tree that adds a blast of color. This leaf has deep lavender and purple colors divided by a dark maroon reticulated vein. Acer palmatum 'Purple Ghost' is heavily sought after for its dynamic color. The growth habit is upright with dense branching in semi-pendulous habit.

‘Purple Ghost’ grows to 8-10 ft tall and wide in 15 years. Filtered evening sun is suggested to bring out the best colors. 'Purple Ghost' captures a landscape with its dramatic show of deep lavender and purple. This selection by our friend Talon Buchholz is a spectacular selection. This is a tree you will want in your garden.

Addicted !

Got 6 amazing Maples. All arrived in perfect condition. Now I am hooked and I will be buying another 4-6.
Do you have a punch card for multiple orders? If not, you should.
Thanks for great “babies” I will take great care of them from Washington state !

Everything is looking good

Like all the plants I purchase from your nursery my Purple Ghost arrived in great condition. The tree appeared almost green but then the new growth was red and reticulated. Hope it likes a little more sun. Thanks again

Mary Rosemeyer
excellent service and excellent product

customer service was very accommodating and communicative. although small, the trees arrived in very healthy condition and have thus far done well. i’m hoping the cicadas don’t kill them!


My tree was planted two weeks ago so I have many years to look forward to watching it grow.
