Many nurseries today simply pot-up small plant liners to larger containers and never touch them again until they’re sold. This is certainly NOT the case at Adcock’s. It takes a lot of time and effort to produce quality shrubs and trees.


20g Emperor I Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum 'Emperor I'

7-8' ht - 1.75-2" c

Grows 10-15' ht & sp 

Emperor I is similar in color, leaf structure and growth habit of the Bloodgood Japanese Maple. However, it holds its red color better through out the summer and has a brilliant crimson red color in the fall. It leafs out later than a Bloodgood thus lessening the chance of frost damage. It makes a great speciman plant. Does require some afternoon shade.

  • Hardy in zones 5-8
  • Full Sun, Part Shade,
