Acer Palmatum - 'Glowing Embers'

'Glowing Embers' is an outstanding Japanese maple that has just become the state of Georgia's Gold Medal winner for 2005. It was selected as the Gold Medal winner for its vigorous growth rate, brilliant fall color and adaptability to a range of landscape conditions. 'Glowing Embers' provides a kaleidoscope of colors in fall as the leaves fade from green to purple, fluorescent orange or yellow, much like the ever-changing and mesmerizing embers of a wood fire. The color sequence of each leaf varies as fall deepens. A single branch may display four distinctly different colors at the same time. 'Glowing Embers' is beautiful all year with its bright green leaf color which turns different shades in the summer and fall. Unlike many Japanese maples that require shade and moist, organic soils, 'Glowing Embers' thrives in full sun and it tolerates drought better than most trees in its class. 'Glowing Embers' is a medium-size deciduous tree, growing just over 30 feet high and wide. Its leaves are fine-toothed, 2 to 3 inches long and about 3 inches wide, with five distinct, pointed lobes. The tree has a dense canopy when it's in full leaf. It's an excellent shade tree for residential landscapes where space is limited. 'Glowing Embers' Japanese maple is quickly becoming a highly demanded and popular plant in the nursery industry as landscape professionals and home gardeners discover its award-winning qualities.
