What Houzz contributors are saying:
Other Japanese maples, such as the red-leafed ‘Bloodgood’, Emperor 1 and coral bark maple (Acer palmatum ‘Sango Kaku’), have an upright growth pattern and typically reach 15 to 25 feet in height. Not all Japanese maples are created equal. My experience has shown that many people purchase upright varieties with the misconception that they will stay under 8 feet in height. A bit of research on the front end will spare you future disappointment.
Perhaps the ultimate specimen tree, Japanese maples (Acer palmatum) come in an almost bewildering array of shapes, sizes and leaf colors. They are elegantly beautiful in every season, in leaf or bare-branched. Japanese maples are hardy in zones 6 (-10°F) to 8 (10°F) and need both sun and shade. Too much sun and their leaves can burn at the tips.
