Acer palmatum 'Moonfire'

Red Moonfire Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9


Moonfire is an upright red Japanese maple tree. This 'Moonfire' Japanese maple cultivar is very heat tolerant and holds its color well all summer. The leaf has a sheen to it that gives the branches a beautiful appearance in the sun.  This 'Moonfire' Japanese maple leafs out with a brilliant deep maroon and its fall color is a bright fire engine red. The height of this red Japanese maple tree can reach around 10-12  feet in 15 years. ‘Moonfire’ is an excellent Japanese maple selection for anyone looking for an interesting red upright.  'Moonfire' was an introduction by Dick Wolf of Red Maple Nursery. The first photo shows you the color and size of new growth, while the second photo is "Moonfire' just beginning to leaf out in New Jersey. This shows the shape of a more mature tree.

Trees were potted from large liners to gallons last fall and may not have completely filled out their pots. 

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.
