The larger leaves on this Vine Maple are dark red-purple when they emerge in spring, fading to a coppery-red and green in late summer. The fall color is rich and varied and can give an impression of stained glass when the evening light shines through. This is an upright tree with stiff and stout branches forming a vase shape. The trunk and branches are an impressive deep reddish-purple, beautiful all year, but especially in winter. It's great for an accent, a focal point, or a dense screen. And, obligingly, it does not need much summer water.
