Avoid the typical summer fading of common red-leaved Japanese Maples with Sherwood Flame, outstanding not only for holding its rich burgundy color all summer, but also for a brilliant fall display of scarlet leaves. A key feature too are the clusters of tiny red ‘maple-keys’ that festoon the branches in early winter – an added feature absent from most Japanese Maples.

• Perfect tree for smaller gardens
• Outstanding summer and fall colors
• Winter show of attractive seeds
• Excellent summer color – no fading
• Shade tolerant

Small branches covered with characteristic star-shaped leaves, give this small tree a strong yet elegant visual appeal that surpasses any other tree in its class. The branches form low on the trunk of the Sherwood Flame; as the tree matures it develops a rounded figure with a graceful spread. Shade tolerant too, making this the ideal tree for a smaller garden, bringing great beauty without crowding your limited space. A good tree for a large planter too, thriving for years and growing in beauty.
