Japanese Maples and Conifers

Acer palmatum 'Garnet'


'Garnet' was originally introduced in the Netherlands in the early nineteen sixties where it's popularity has constantly grown and to this day is one of the most widely grown dissectums in Europe. U.S. growers unfortunately are sometimes to quick to jump on the latest greatest cultivars and do not grow this plant in the numbers they did in the eighties and nineties. This is a shame, even though 'Garnet does not hold it's color as long into the Southeastern hot summers as some other cultivars, the orange red color in spring, bright garnet color in fall and quick rate of growth all make this a wonderful cultivar.
