Acer palmatum 'Sherwood Flame'

Sherwood Flame Japanese Maple

Distinctive branching gives Acer palmatum ‘Sherwood Flame’ a strong, formal look, and good heat tolerance keeps its red foliage red from spring through summer. In fall, leaves go reddish green first, then brighten to cherry red as the season progresses. Trees broaden with maturity to develop a rounded silhouette, which provides good winter interest, especially combined with bark that has distinctive silver striations. A seedling selected from ‘Burgundy Lace’ and developed by Will Curtis, Sherwood, Oregon.
