Acer palmatum 'Blackbeard's Gold' Japanese Maple

Great Golden Fall Color - Red Upright Japanese Maple



Zones 5-9

'Blackbeard's Gold' is exactly what everyone is searching for! This gorgeous tree is one of the lastest introductions from the Area 51 Collection at MrMaple in North Carolina. In the early spring this upright Japanese maple is a cherry red, maturing to a dark black red by late spring to early summer. By late summer the leaves turn a pleasant green. The fall color is an electric golden yellow which is where this tree gets its name, "Blackbeard's Gold". The overall habit is upright, yet semi-pendulous giving this tree a nice arching habit. We expect 'Blackbeard's Gold' to reach 15-18 ft in 20 years.

Selected as a chance seedling by our father as a Japanese maple backdrop for our display garden, this tree often steals the show in the fall. For years visitors to the nursery have been asking for this Japanese maple because of the nice spring color and exceptional golden fall color. Now is your chance! Get 'Blackbeard's Gold' today before we are sold out!
