this is a witches broom with the usual twiggy growth but a very vigorous
upright habit. The small attractive leaves emerge bright red in spring
before turning dark red in summer. This plant holds it's color very well even
in hot climates. It also seems to hold color well in fairly heavy shade. Fall
color is a bright scarlet and rather late compared to other maples.
