This Ken Twombly introduction has a unique narrow, upright shape, attractive in many situations where space is limited, particularly close to a building or walkway. The plant in our home landscape seems more appealing with each passing season. It remains a strong maroon color all summer long here in NW Oregon.

Perfect for a smaller garden, this outstanding purple-red variety forms a column that gets about 10' tall but only 3' wide in 10 years. Found as a witches broom, it develops intense color that lasts through the growing season and then flashes into spectacular red for fall. Although it has proven somewhat difficult to propagate, the narrow selection grows nicely.

With today's small landscapes, narrow trees are in high demand, but until now it has been very difficult finding a Japanese maple to fill this niche. This selection should help narrow the gap.

Supposedly Twombly is a columnar bright red dwarf, but I have seen one 15' x 8' so it wasn't small but it was indeed TIGHT and columnar, but fatly columnar.

Discovered as a witch's broom of Acer 'Bloodgood' at Twombley's Nursery in CT, this distinctive red leaved Japanese Maple has a slightly broad columnar habit, reaching 15' in height and up to 8' in width, although careful pruning can keep it on the narrow side. It also remarkable in that it holds it leaves in New England through late November. 4-5' plants for spring shipping.
