Basic run-of-the-mill crimson trees had better watch out because thereís a new Maple on the scene, and itís soon to be setting the standard by which all red split-leafs will be judged. The Red Dragon Japanese Maple is a newly introduced cultivar from New Zealand, and itís taking the gardening world by storm.
Touted for its brilliant shades of crimson and scarlet foliage throughout the seasons and its superior ability to maintain those vibrant colors when all others are fading, the Red Dragon Japanese Maple tree is one of the most gorgeous trees available on the market today.
Spring arrives with a burst of bright ruby red foliage that is vivid and showy. As summer approaches, Red Dragonís foliage ages to a rich warm burgundy, adding an air of elegance to any outdoor living space. As autumn rolls in, Red Dragon dials up the drama with foliage that turns fiery red for a striking punch of color that rivals all other leaf-peeper favorites.

Maturing to heights of just 8-10 feet with a similar spread, the Red Dragon Japanese Maple is considered somewhat petite in stature by tree standards, making it an ideal choice for smaller garden spaces.

Hardy in zones 5-8, Red Dragon is adaptable to most any soil type, as long as itís well-drained to avoid root rot. Red Dragon Japanese Maple is more sun-tolerant than nearly all other Japanese Maples and is moderately drought-tolerant as well, once established.
