‘Purple Ghost’ is a very striking tree that adds a blast of color. This leaf has deep lavender and purple colors divided by a dark maroon reticulated vein. Acer palmatum 'Purple Ghost' is heavily sought after for its dynamic color. The growth habit is upright with dense branching in semi-pendulous habit.

‘Purple Ghost’ grows to 8-10 ft tall and wide in 15 years. Filtered evening sun is suggested to bring out the best colors. 'Purple Ghost' captures a landscape with its dramatic show of deep lavender and purple. This selection by our friend Talon Buchholz is a spectacular selection. This is a tree you will want in your garden.

Ivermectin than expected

The tree came so well packaged. It came an along distance to Nevada. I immediately transplanted it and watered it deeply as it traveled in the hot weather. I’m very impressed. I can’t wait to watch it grow. A beautiful tree.

Great Purple Ghost Japanese Maple

We received it in good condition, the leaves, branches and roots were still in good condition when we opened the box, I put it in a big pot a week after receiving it.

Great company

I made my first purchase and am very happy with the delivery and quality. 2 trees and 5 plants, in the ground for less than 2 weeks, show good settling in. Ordering more this fall. Thank you

Purple Ghost

I received my Purple Ghost along with an Acer Shirasawnum Moonrise in the same box. Both were packed very well. The Purple Ghost's leaves were green when I too it out of the box, and 2 days later after receiving a little sun they began to turn reddish purple. I'm looking forward to the Fall colors and next Spring. This was a great Father's Day gift from my wife and 3 sons.
