The Peridot Flame Japanese Maple is a graceful and unique tree, with outstretched leaves that are large, and they are deeply divided into 7 slender lobes. Their irregular margins look like flickering flames, and the olive-green of the summer leaves glows like the gemstone peridot. Spring is a symphony of reds, yellows and oranges, with many different effects seen on the leaves, while the green summer leaves are accented with pale lime veins. In fall the tree turns yellow, amber and burgundy for a final show. This is a very fast-growing variety that will soon make a 10-foot tree, and then grow over 20 feet relatively quickly. Use it for an exciting lawn specimen, in a wooded area, or in larger beds.

  • Graceful rich green leaves with long tapering lobes
  • Lime-green veins stand out on the olive-green foliage
  • In spring leaves are orange, red and yellow
  • Fall leaves are gold, amber and burgundy
  • A larger and very fast-growing specimen tree

The tough leaves of the Peridot Flame Japanese Maple will thrive in full sun in cooler zones, and with afternoon shade in hotter ones. This tree grows well in moist, well-drained soil enriched with compost, and it is more resistant to heat and dryness than many other varieties. It can be pruned in winter to create a tree-like form, and it normally has no pests or diseases. It is hardy across most of the country, from zone 5 to zone 9.
