Red Pygmy

Acer Palmatum Group: Linearilobum - Red


The large bright red-maroon leaves have mainly seven lobes. The long, traplike lobes separate entirely to the leaf base. The effect of these delicate leaves is lace like. The leaf stalks are short. The spring and early summer colour of red-maroon holds quite well through the hot weather. In late summer, it deepens into a more purplish tone. In direct sun it bronzes with green undertones somewhat late in the season. The colour holds much better and sunburns less than the standard cultivar. The young shoots are red.
