Acer palmatum 'Phantom Flame'

Acer palmatum 'Phantom Flame' combines the trademark characteristics of the 'Ghost Series' and 'Tsuma Gaki'. Spring growth brandishes cream colored leaves with prominent dark green veins. On top of that, the leaf tips are bright red in colour. The leaves then age to darker greens throughout summer before becoming red in Autumn. 'Phantom Flame' is a slow grower reaching 5' tall x 4' wide in 10 years. Leaves are sensitive to hot afternoon sun and protection is preferred. A beautiful choice for spring interest leaves. Always a 'wow' factor Japanese maple here at our nursery. Due to its larger mature height, it is better suited for a larger garden landscape.

Acer palmatum 'Phantom Flame' was introduced by Crispin's Creations Nursery in Oregon, USA.
