palmatum 'Red Emperor'
introduced by Dick Wolff at Red Maple Nursery in Pennsylvania as Emperor
1 in 1976 and much
later patented under that name by someone in Oregon. Many growers grow
plant as 'Red Emperor'. It does not matter what you call it, this is a
plant. It is one of many in a long line of trees to claim the title "Better Than Bloodgood"
some ways it is. 'Red Emperor does not burn in full sun in the
Southeast, as to
how well it holds it's color, we find that in some landscapes it does
or better than other cultivars but in other situations it seems to turn
little quicker. We have yet to determine what causes this. Either way,
tree will not disappoint you. Another advantage is that it usually
leafs out a
few days later than 'Bloodgood' in the spring lessening the chance of
damage. The growth rate is very good, spring color is dark purple and
color is bright red.
