Acer palmatum 'Rite of Spring'
Acer palmatum 'Rite of Spring' has a thinner deeply divided leaf than the majority of broad leaf Japanese maples. These leaves emerge in the spring with a bright red color. The color of the leaves darkens to a deeper burgundy red in the summer. The leaves change back to a bright red in the fall. 'Rite of Spring' is a shorter growing tree for an upright Japanese maple and has a real full habit. The picture is green because of heavy shade.
