Acer palmatum 'Crimson Prince' - mapleridgenursery Acer palmatum 'Crimson Prince' - mapleridgenursery
Acer palmatum 'Crimson Prince' Red Upright Japanese Maple
from $39.00
Acer palmatum ‘Crimson Prince’ was introduced by Princeton Nurseries in 1988. This is one of many in a long line of cultivars claiming better than 'Bloodgood' status.  Being relatively fast growing 'Crimson Prince' is a very desirable red cultivar with dark purple almost black stems. The spring color is slightly more red and not as dark as 'Bloodgood' and does hold well into the summer finally turning first bronze then olive green by mid to late August in hot climates. As soon as cool nights start to show up in fall the nice dark red color quickly returns. This plant is very heavily branched and dense making it an excellent choice for a screening plant. Fall color is bright red. 10 Year Size Height:  16-20 feet    Width: 16-20 feet

from $39.00

Acer palmatum 'Beni kawa' - mapleridgenursery
Acer palmatum 'Beni kawa' Coral Bark Japanese Maple
from $39.00
An upright vase shaped form of coral bark maple. The bark is usually more red in winter compared to the salmon color of it's more famous cousin 'Sango kaku'. 'Beni kawa' also tends to be slightly wider and shorter.  You will sometimes see 'Beni kawa' spelled as 'Beni gawa', this is due to a translation error when it was first brought to the U.S. and some growers have never corrected the mistake. Fall color ranges from yellow to orange and usually is an attractive combination of both. The foliage would like a little break from the summer sun in hotter climates, but the more winter sun the tree gets the more intense the bark color will be.10 Year size:  Height:  12-14  Feet    Width:  8-10  FeetSpring Color: GreenSummer Color: GreenFall Color: OrangeSun Tolerance: FullPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'O jishi' Lion's Head Japanese Maple
from $39.00
Acer palmatum ‘O jishi’ is one of the famous lions head maples. 'O jishi' is the male lion and 'Meijishi' is the female lion. Shishigashira means lions head, and while this term can be used to describe either cultivar it is generally used to describe 'Meijishi'. The leaves of 'Ojishi' are heavily crinkled but lighter in color and not quite as tightly crinkled as 'Meijishi'. 'O jishi' is also a much slower growing smaller tree. In full sun new growth has a red tinge to the tips of the foliage. Fall color is red and glorious. The leaves appear very crowded on the stem giving the tree a compact and congested look, with the short internodal length making it hard to propagate and contributing to the fact that it is rarely seen in nurseries. 'O jishi' is excellent for containers and makes a wonderful patio tree.10 Year size:  Height:  4-5  Feet    Width: 3-4 FeetSpring Color: GreenSummer Color: GreenFall Color: OrangeSun Tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil
