The ‘Crimson Prince’ Japanese Maple is an outstanding variety, with bright red spring leaves that stay red all summer in all but the hottest zones. The fall colors are early, and a brilliant scarlet that sets your garden on fire. The large leaves are divided into slender lobes, but scorching and drying are minimal with some attention. This tree is fast-growing with an upright habit and it can reach 15 feet tall within 10 years under good conditions. Grow it as a fabulous lawn specimen or in a row for an amazing screen. Plant it in a garden of any style, around your house, in beds or out in a wooded area.

  • Outstanding vigorous red-leaf variety
  • Bold red leaves stay red all summer
  • Brilliant scarlet fall shades
  • Perfect lawn specimen or screening tree
  • Reaches 15 feet within 10 years or so

The ‘Crimson Prince’ Japanese Maple should be grown with some sun for part of the day, and in cold zones with good watering it will grow in full sun. Afternoon shade, or dappled overhead shade is ideal. The soil should be enriched with organic material, and moist but well-drained. Established trees can handle ordinary summer dryness, but this tree is not drought resistant and benefits from periodic watering. It is usually untroubled by pests or diseases and needs little attention to do well, once established. Prune as needed for the exact form you want.
