The Emperor’s New Growth
If you’re seeking a vivid Japanese Maple tree with vivid red color, look no further than the Emperor Japanese Maple. Known for its strength and vigorous growth, the Emperor is one of the hardiest Japanese Maple varieties available. With its height ranging between 12 to 15 feet at maturity, the Emperor’s convenient stature makes it large enough to plant as a street tree or yard specimen, yet compact enough to suit most planting locations. What’s more, its upright growth is easy to maintain. And if that’s not enough, spring leaves will arrive a few weeks later than most other Japanese Maples. That means spring frost damage won’t be a concern with the Emperor.
When it comes to color, all others bow to the Emperor
In the spring, leaves will flood your tree with heavy purple hues, followed by incredible crimson reds in the fall. The foliage’s thin texture allows light to penetrate, giving the rich, red autumn leaves their brilliant color. The best part is - unlike other varieties - the Emperor maintains its gorgeous color the whole season long.
Don’t miss out on this show of color. Order your Emperor Japanese Maple today!

Strong as a Rock!!
I love my Emperor Japanese Maple Tree. It was planted in my front yard the day it arrived (April 19th). Unfortunately, the following three days were very, very windy. I was worried it would not survive the gusty winds for just one day but it held strong all three days. But on the forth day, it snowed. As I watched the snowfall from my window, I worried about my tree, again. First the wind, now the snow. But fortunately, the Emperor Japanese Maple Tree held strong and is growing well. it’s a great tree. It’s a survivor! :)
Great looking trees
Purchased 3 trees back in October and they are doing fantastic,, highly recommended
The leaves all dried during shipping and have since dropped. It looks like a second pruning was done so it would fit in the box or the height being sold as. It should be a healthy tree for my yard.Since it will top out higher than other *** maples I intended to plant in the back of my yard but it will be spending the winter in my green house out of frost and snow for now.
The Worst Tree !
I bought this tree three months ago it looks like it's dying . watered it every other day for 1st month . zero growth !
The emperor came in on time and looked healthy. I planted him on a large pot and he's already switching colors! The leafs are dark purple and beautiful.
