Acer palmatum 'Sherwood Elfin'
Rare Dwarf Sherwood Elfin Japanese Maple Tree

Zones 5-9

'Sherwood Elfin' is not actually a laceleaf, it is simply a dwarf matsumurae. Think of it like a dwarf 'Burgundy Lace' with a slightly more dense habit. It was actually found as chance seedling from 'Sherwood Flame' where it gets 'Sherwood' in its name. It gets 'Elfin' because of its dwarf habit.  It leaves out in the early spring as brighter red quickly changing to deep maroon.

Fall colors are a bright crimson red. This tree is actually a heat tolerant selection that has been trialed in central Florida and lower Alabama and has done great in the heat of the South. It was actually a selection from Alabama which attests to this heat tolerance. In 15-20 years, 'Sherwood Elfin' will reach 4-6 ft in height.
