Acer palmatum 'Spring Plum' 

Spring Plum Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9


‘Spring Plum’ is a brand new selection with a deep burgundy plum spring color. Chartreuse veins come into the color late spring, making a great contrast. Emerald green leaves with a plum cast display for much of the summer. In the fall, ‘Spring Plum’ may turn to a bright scarlet red. Give ‘Spring Plum’ protection from the hot afternoon sun in the south.  ‘Spring Plum’ may reach 7-8 ft in 10 years.

When I first got ‘Spring Plum’ I thought it was one of the new Acer shirasawanum hybrids. It’s large full leaf was reminiscent of a full moon maple. Its habit is fairly similar as well. The unique thing is that Talon Buchholz states the mother plant for ‘Spring Plum’ was actually ‘Purple Ghost’. This would be such a fun tree to grow and go through the seedlings from it.

 

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