Seedlings from Acer shirasawanum Red Dawn 
Red Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

Matt and Tim love looking through seedling Japanese maples to find unique variations. Acer shirasawanum 'Red Dawn' is one of the first of its kind, being a red selection of full moon Japanese maple. We decided to look through the seedlings of these to see what we might find. Now is your chance to get some of these fun red seedlings from Red Dawn.

First off, I want to be clear that these are seedlings from Acer shirasawanum Red Dawn and are not 'Red Dawn'. Seedlings do not come back true to form. They often will have moderate to slight variations from the parent tree. Because of this variation we can give you a broad description that may fit most of these trees, but a few may have variation outside this description as they age.

Most of the seedlings from Red Dawn have bright red to purple red color in the spring. We would expect most of these seedlings from Red Dawn to reach 8-10 ft in 15 years. I would recommend giving them protection from the hot afternoon sun as well. Fall colors may vary on many of these seedlings.  

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.
