Acer circinatum 'Pacific Fire’
Rare Vine Maple Hybrid Coral Bark Japanese Maple
'Pacific Fire' is a fairly recent introduction from a Northwest grower that has changed the way people think about coral barks. 'Pacific' comes from the circinatum being indigenous to the Pacific Northwest while 'Fire' refers to this maple's fire red bark. This fire red bark is arguably even brighter than its acer palmatum counterpart 'Sango kaku' commonly referred to as "the Coral Bark Maple". This bright red bark on 'Pacific Fire' becomes more intense as winter approaches providing color and pizazz for the winter garden. The compact multi-stemmed structure of this circinatum allows this tree to provide the most winter color in small amount of space. Acer circinatum 'Pacific Fire' attains a height of about 12 feet in 15 years. From our personal experience, 'Pacific Fire' appears to hold its fire colored bark on its newer growth longer than any of the other coral barked cultivars.
As a coral bark cultivar, 'Pacific Fire' has the most dramatic changes in the leaf color. This beauty leafs out as a chartreuse green leaf on the bright red stems providing a dynamic contrast. As the season progresses, some malting of reds may occur in the leaf. During the fall this tree will put on the best display primarily bright yellows infused with oranges and reds. The 7-9 lobed leaf on 'Pacific Fire' is one of the largest of all the coral bark cultivars making it one of the best to display the amazing spring and fall colors of a Japanese maple.
'Pacific Fire', like all circinatum cultivars, performs best when planted with protection from the hot afternoon sun and watered at regular intervals. 'Pacific Fire' is one of the best Japanese maple cultivars on the nursery trade and will make a great fit for your garden!
