What a great Japanese maple for a large container. This tree is the smallest of the Linearilobum types and grows into a rounded upright form with the leaves looking like long red fingers. It also can resemble bamboo with this leaf shape. The red color lasts well into the fall when the color goes more purple-red. This tree will grow to 6 ft tall or a bit smaller if in a container. sometimes used in bonsai. Hardy to zone 5.
