Basic run-of-the-mill crimson trees had better watch out because there’s a new Maple on the scene, and it’s 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 it’s 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 Dragon’s 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.
Red Dragon’s canopy of foliage takes the unique form of a slightly rounded mound of cascading arched branches with weeping fringed leaves that flutter radiantly in the breeze.
This tree is truly a sight to behold.
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.
This tree carries the show as a single specimen and is also exceptional when grouped in threes for accent anywhere.
You can even keep Red Dragon in a decorative pot, clipped and shaped for the perfect addition to any deck or patio area.
Red Dragon Japanese Maple is more sun-tolerant than nearly all other Japanese Maples and is moderately drought-tolerant as well, once established.
Plant it by a pond or water feature for a striking location, or simply put one by a seating bench so you can sit by it and take in its showy beauty.
Easy to grow and absolutely gorgeous to view, the Red Dragon Japanese Maple tree is not to be missed.
