The Fireglow Japanese Maple is among the best red-leaf maples available. Smaller than ‘Bloodgood’, it holds its red leaf color in summer heat much better, and its size, to just 12 feet or so, makes it a top choice for smaller gardens or smaller spaces. The beautiful 5-lobed leaves are brilliant red in spring, turning burgundy red all summer, and then returning to glowing red in fall. A good crop of red maple keys in winter keeps it interesting all year round. Grow it as a specimen on a lawn, at the back of beds, in a courtyard or Asian garden, or in a container, where it will stay smaller, but be just as beautiful.

  • Superb small tree with the best red summer leaves
  • Bright red in spring and fall, burgundy in summer
  • Doesn’t turn purple or green, even in hot summers
  • Great choice for smaller gardens
  • Resists heat and dryness well

The Fireglow Japanese Maple is hardy from zone 5 into all hotter areas, and it resists fading and scorching well. It should be in full sun in cooler zones, and in afternoon shade in warmer ones. The soil should be rich, moist and well-drained. Add organic material when planting, and mulch in spring with more, to keep the roots cool and moist. Pests and diseases are almost never a problem, and no pruning is needed to keep it compact and beautiful all year round.
