Acer palmatum 'Fountain Of Youth'
Rare Weeping Japanese Maple

Area 51 Collection

Zones 5-9

The search for the Fountain of Youth is over! You can now put a 'Fountain of Youth' in your very own garden! Out of the Area 51 Collection at MrMaple, we now introduce 'Fountain of Youth'. 

'Fountain of Youth' has longer finger-like green leaves that are displayed on heavily cascading branching. In the spring, new growth flushes may be salmon pink, to chartreuse green with a salmon pink border to the leaves. During the summer, the leaves turn to a darker green. 'Fountain of Youth' turns to bright fiery reds in the fall. We recommend staking 'Fountain of Youth' up to about 6 ft in height, which will reach about 4 ft in width in 10 years. 'Fountain of Youth' is fairly vigorous and easy to grow. 'Fountain of Youth' makes a great plant to use in a container or to use in the landscape. 'Fountain of Youth' was found as a chance seedling from a seedling from the Legacy of ‘Nakakamado Weeping’ at our nursery. This is a fun plant that you are sure to love in your garden.
