Acer oliverianum ssp. oliverianum X

'Hot Blonde'

Zones 6-9 

Heatseekers Series™


'Hot Blonde' was found by the brothers as a chance hybrid between Acer oliverianum and a golden Japanese maple. The result is a gorgeous golden yellow upright Japanese maple with orange border in the spring. 'Hot Blonde' gets more and more yellow as the season goes on. 'Hot Blonde' is a strong growing and vigorous tree, reaching 12-14 ft in 10 years. Fall color on 'Hot Blonde' is an intense fiery red. Last fall, the fall color on 'Hot Blonde' lasted from mid-October to mid-December even in our hot cold frames. This may be perhaps one of our best introductions to date. We even considered patenting this tree, but decided finally to release it this year. 'Hot Blonde' will make a great focal point, or a great golden yellow tree to bring out the reds and greens in your landscape.

'Hot Blonde' is one of the most heat tolerant Japanese maples we produce. This heat tolerance allows gardeners the ability to bring more ornamental appeal to the southwest exposure in the southern garden. Gardeners in the South have been looking for this Japanese maple for years. This cultivar must be propagated by grafting onto Acer palmatum. 'Hot Blonde' is part of our Heatseekers Series™ of Heat Tolerant Japanese maples for the South.

Limited Quantities Available !! As we have over a thousand cultivars of Japanese maples, we often do not have many of each cultivar. We recommend that you buy the Japanese maples you want immediately as we often sell out of certain selections.
