Acer palmatum 'Oregon Sunset' 

Oregon Sunset Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

'Oregon Sunset' leafs out in the early spring with large rounded plum colored leaves and a growth habit with lots of lateral yet slightly upright branching. This forms a beautiful mid-sized spreading Japanese maple reaching about 7 ft in height by 10 ft wide in 20 years. This size and shape makes this Japanese maple an ideal Japanese maple for small garden spaces. Fall colors are the colors of a sunset, brilliant shades of orange & red.

If you want an even smaller tree in height trim out the central leader at an early age creating a wide-spreading red Japanese maple with a large palmate leaf. Examples of this can be seen at the JC Raulston Arboretum at NC State. This gives a great alternative and provides a lot of color while not blocking vision elsewhere in the garden. For best growth,  we recommend protection from the hot afternoon sun.

Nice sized Oregon Sunset has already had some new growth and seems to be doing well in a part of the yard that is shielded from the sun beginning at 2:30pm. Very high temps are forecasted for this week in the northeast so I have to pamper this baby so it can show off the in the fall.

Maple madness

Looks good so far I live in arizona so it's a bit of a struggle growing but I got a decent specimen of oregon sunset from Mr maple and it's doing OK so far

Randy Smith
Perfect little pre-bonsai tree

Very healthy tree, picked with some nice branching near the bottom. A lot of tree for a 1 gallon size, this will be fun to do cuttings from, air-layering, and eventually itself become a bonsai. Leaf size is perfect, color already beautiful, and excellent bifurcation with the upper branches. Thanks!
