Japanese Maple

Ghost Series

Zones 5-9

‘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 feet 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.

A much bigger tree than other vendors have offered. One of my favorites, can't wait to see the purple colors come in.

Quick to Recover

There was a moderate amount of pruning that needed to be done on arrival, quite a few dry/damaged leaves. It was also green on arrival although it had been in a box for 2 days. At the time of writing the colour is starting to return to purple as it gets more sun. Overall amazing tree, I will be buying more of these!
