Acer palmatum 'Glowing Embers' by Michael Dirr
Glowing Embers Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9


There are two Japanese maples by the name 'Glowing Embers'. This Japanese maple selection is the most prestigious of the two and was found by our good friend Michael Dirr as a chance seedling at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia in Athens, GA. It was selected for its beauty, shape, vigor, hardiness, and especially it's fall color. The 'Glowing Embers' Japanese maple leafs out in the early spring with small chartreuse green palmate leaf which matures to a rich green by the summer. This selection from the south is extremely heat tolerant and a great vigorous upright growing Japanese maple with good form. 'Glowing Embers' will reach nearly 10 ft in 10 years. Fall colors are outstanding fiery red where is where this maple gets its accurate name of 'Glowing Embers'. This Japanese maple is excellent for focal point planting, background planting, and especially planting for dynamic fall color.  

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 Japanese maples you want immediately as we often sell out of certain selections.
