Fireglow Upright Red Japanese Maple
acer palmatum fireglow
Fireglow is an impressive, vigorous, reliable tree that burns fire-red. Although it is vigorous, it does not become as tall and widespread as 'Bloodgood' thus making it an excellent garden or container plant. 'Fireglow' is similar to 'Bloodgood' but the leaves are not as deeply divided and has a deeper more intense red color which stays throughout the summer. Fireglow does well in hot, sunny conditions. The foliage becomes purple red suffused with green in the early fall. It was given the name 'Fireglow' because of its eye-catching color when the sun shines though the leaves. This cultivar forms an upright tree/shrub shape with many slender dark red shoots. The tree can reach 6-10 feet in 10 years, and reach 12-15 ft. overall.
