Maria’s Plant Pick of the Week – Crimson Queen Japanese Maple

Maria isn’t even as tall this impressively stunning Crimson Queen Japanese Maple, her Plant Pick of the Week! Crimson Queens are beloved for their cascading branches and exquisite color. New growth is burgundy, and in fall the leaves take on all different shades of reds.  Much like Maria, they glow in the sunlight, showing off cherry jewel-tones on delicate lacy leaves. There isn’t a better specimen tree out there! Just be sure they’re planted in morning sun/afternoon shade, with a well-draining and slightly acidic soil, and you will be the absolute show-stopper of the neighborhood.  Shop for them in our Online Marketplace here, or follow the maroon glow to our Tree & Shrub section to see them in person.
