Acer palmatum 'Pung Kil'

Acer palmatum 'Pung Kil' is unique in the way that it has dark purple leaves that match the young dark purple bark. The purple bark provides nice winter interest and is a stand out feature for this maple. The leaves are long and slender and the purple foliage holds its color well throughout summer before turning a brilliant red in fall. Despite it's delicate strap-leaves, this maple can withstand full afternoon sun. 'Pung Kil' is an upright grower and reaches 7' tall x 4' wide in 10 years. This maple adds amazing color and texture with good winter interest to the larger garden landscape.

Acer palmatum 'Pung Kil' is an introduction from Korea.
