Acer oliverianum ssp. oliverianum X

'Hot Sauce'

Zones 6-9 

Heatseekers Series™


'Hot Sauce' was found and selected from a batch of Acer oliverianum by our good friend and mentor, Masayoshi Yano, at World Maple Park in Uda, Japan.

’Hot Sauce’ is quite attractive for an Acer oliverianum, giving the red color of a ‘Bloodgood’ Japanese maple, but the heat tolerance of Acer oliverianum. The spring color of ‘Hot Sauce’ is a bright red, turning to deep red. To hold the best color and get the best vigor out of ‘Hot Sauce’ give it plenty of sunlight. During the latest part of summer, ‘Hot Sauce’ may turn greener. Fall color is bright oranges to red. ‘Hot Sauce’ makes a nice upright tree reaching 10-12 ft in height in 10 years. 

‘Hot Sauce’ was given as a gift by Masayoshi Yano to Matt and Tim under the working code-name “Nakahara beni A’ . We received permission by Mr. Yano to call this tree ‘Hot Sauce’ and have added this tree to our Heatseekers Series™ of heat tolerant maples for the Southern Garden.

'Hot Sauce' 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.

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.
