Japanese Maples and Conifers

Acer palmatum 'Atrolineare'





This red linearilobum with fine thread-like leaves makes a beautiful spring display before summers heat turns the leaves first bronze and then green. The late summer growth tends to have much wider lobes. The shape is generally vase shaped and open topped. Fall color varies between red and orange. While 'Atrolineare' tolerates full sun in many areas, it will benefit greatly from some afternoon shade in hot climates. 

Many different trees have been sold under this name and this plant has been sold under many other names. Authors list 'Atrolineare' as synonymous with an entire list of plants. Several of these so-called synonyms have been observed to be totally different. This plant is a standard throughout the world and to avoid confusion this plant should be left to stand on it's own.
