Acer palmatum 'Purple Ghost' is beautiful reticulated maple that emerges with rich purple red leaves. Prominent dark veins run throughout the leaves that further accentuate the beauty of this maple. The spring colors hold fairly well late into the season but do darken in the summer. In the fall, this beauty transforms into vibrant orange and reds. 'Purple Ghost' is an upright deciduous tree that can reach 8' tall x 4' wide in 10 years. If purple is what you want, this is no doubt the Japanese maple you need. This mid sized tree is better suited for the larger garden.
Acer palmatum 'Purple Ghost' was discovered and introduced by Buchholz Nursery in Oregon, USA.
