Acer oliverianum ssp. formosanum

The Ultimate Heat Tolerant Maple
Extremely Rare Taiwanese Maple Oliver's Taiwanese Maple

Zones 7-10

This species is spectacular. Acer oliverianum ssp. formosanum has phenomenal dynamic colors throughout the seasons and forms a small mid-sized tree reaching 15-18ft in 15-20 years.

In the early spring Oliver's Taiwanese maple unfurls buds of coral pink with large palmate leaves. It is easy to see it's close relation to your typical Japanese maple. During late spring this ornamental tree turns to bright green before putting on a pink-red summer new flush of growth. During the fall Acer oliverianum ssp. fomosanum turns to bright oranges that are infused with gold.

While this mid-sized tree provides great color in the landscape, it is also is extremely heat tolerant, making it very useful in the southern landscape. This species has been trial tested in southern Georgia and has proved to be a great maple for the deep south.
