Maple (Purpleblow)

Acer truncatum

A tough, medium-sizes beauty that tolerates urban conditions quite well. Shantung Maple can have a burst of Reddish new growth accented by the green older growth. This trait, however, is variable, excellent displays some years and some years exhibiting only brief tinge of red new growth. Yellow spring flowers emerge with the spring growth. The habit is relaxed. Can have extremely brilliant fall coloration but this also is variable from year to year. Leaf spot can be a minor problem. Even at its worst, is a very worthy landscape plant. At its best, it is spectacular. Grows 30’-40’ high and wide.

Shantung Maple is best used as a specimen. Can also be used in groupings, especially with evergreens.
