The Fireglow Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum ‘Fireglow’) is an extraordinary tree that captivates with its stunning red foliage and compact size. With its upright growth habit, it is a perfect choice for smaller spaces, adding a touch of elegance and vibrant color to your garden.

Similar to the popular ‘Bloodgood’ cultivar, the Fireglow Japanese Maple distinguishes itself with its slower and denser growth. During summer, its leaves transition from a luminescent purple scarlet to a crimson red hue. As fall approaches, the foliage takes on a captivating purple-red tone suffused with hints of green.

This deciduous tree thrives in USDA zones 5-9 and flourishes in full sun, showcasing its remarkable leaf color to its fullest potential. With a mature height of 8-10 feet and a spread of 12-15 feet, it fits perfectly into tighter spaces while providing an outstanding garden or container accent specimen.

The Fireglow Japanese Maple tree is adaptable to various soil conditions and prefers consistently moist but not soggy soil. Its deep red foliage and excellent performance in hot, sunny conditions make it a versatile and reliable choice for your landscape.

With its intense leaf color, moderate growth rate, and remarkable fall color, this ornamental tree is sure to bring beauty and sophistication to any garden.
