Trompenburg is a new addition to Pacific Coast Maples. After seeing Trompenburg in person for the first time this summer we knew immediately that it was a maple that we must add to our collection. Trompenburg in our initial testing, performs as well as any of the Japanese maples when it comes to heat tolerance. Trompenburg's beauty is difficult to describe unless seen in person. Trompenburg is a very fast growing Japanese maple that needs to be pruned more than most when it is young. As the tree matures it becomes much easier to manage and can have an almost breathtaking appearance. The leaves have a strong, durable texture that is not prone to sun burn. The slightly cupped leaves on this award winning cultivar give it an almost three dimensional appearance that adds to this tree's elegance and beauty. Trompenburg's unique leaf shape combined with the tree naturally beautiful structure makes it one of the most beautiful Japanese maples in the world today. The tree's leafstalks are red. The trees purple-red color lasts well into late summer. Trompenburg's fall color is crimson. This Dutch cultivar reaches 18-24 feet in height. This Japanese maple tree was named after the Trompenburg Arboretum in the Netherlands. The tree is a must for collectors, businesses and homeowners that enjoy larger Japanese maple trees. This somewhat rare tree is becoming more popular each day and is becoming a favorite in the landscape industry.
