Acer palmatum 'Taylor'

Acer palmatum 'Taylor' is a stunning Japanese maple with pretty pink leaves in the spring. It will then age to green leaves with pink margins during the summer. Protected from hot afternoon sun, it can sometimes hold the majority of the pink hues well into summer. Of the pink maples, 'Taylor' is one of the longest lasting here at our nursery. A very slow grower only reaching 4' tall x 3' wide in 10 years. A very good choice for a year round interest maple with pink color. Well suited for an ornamental container plant or for a smaller landscape.

Acer palmatum 'Taylor' originated as a result of cross-pollination between two unknown selections of Acer palmatum in 1998 in Boskoop, Netherlands.
