Acer palmatum 'Twombly's Red Sentinel'
Red Sentinel Columnar Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

In the late 1970’s, Ken Twombly of Twombly’s Nursery in CT, found a compact growth shaped mutation on a red bloodgood-type of a Japanese maple at a church in eastern Connecticut. When this broom-like mutation was propagated it had a very unusual form. The name of ‘Twombly’s Red Sentinel’ which Ken chose describes this Japanese maple perfectly. These grafted trees remain tall and upright, yet fairly narrow, making it a great mid-sized flag-pole-like tree of color for small spaces.

‘Twombly’s Red Sentinel’ leafs out in the early spring as a bright red, maturing to a deeper maroon by summer. In autumn, the electric red fall color will grab your attention in the landscape. It will reach 8-10 ft in height by 3 ft wide in 15 years. Because of this shape, Ken recommends using this maple as a high class hedge.

These 10 gallon trees are for local pickup only, we cannot ship them because they are too big. The MrMaple Nursery is located in East Flat Rock, NC. Please contact us to arrange a pickup time.
