Emperor I Japanese Maple

One of the best red-purple leaf types selected in a number of years and although similar to the well known cultivar 'Bloodgood' it has a number of areas of improvement. It is a fast grower and will usually outpace 'Bloodgood' simply because of a tendency to grow late into the season. Despite this trait it is quite hardy and is known to leaf out later, making it a better selection for northern climates. Inexplicably it is also much more heat tolerant and by many reports even holds its rich color in hot climates where 'Bloodgood' melts. The habit is slightly more upright and more open forming a well structured wide spreading tree with low branches.


Very rich dark purple foliage with a glossy surface. New growth is a rich red and is reliably showy in the spring and well into mid to late summer. The leaf size is slightly larger and the lobes are cut further towards the center that 'Bloodgood'.

Bright red-pink samaras add late summer interest.
