Info

Large green leaves are deeply divided, hence the occasionally used name "fern leaf." Spring leaves are pubescent and typically emerge with a profusion of red to burgundy flowers. Fall color is possibly the most spectacular of all maples, hence the name "dancing peacock." Fall colors are brilliant crimson to orange.

Awards: Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
