Acer palmatum 'Trompenburg'
(Trompenburg Japanese Maple)


Botanical Name:
Acer palmatum 'Trompenburg'

Common Name:
Trompenburg Japanese Maple

Plant Hardiness: Zone 5

Flower: Inconspicuous red flowers in spring as the foliage emerges.

Bloom Time: April

Foliage: Dark purple-red leaves have an edge that curls downward giving great interest to the tree. Leaves turn a wonderful crimson in the fall.

Fruit: Red samaras in early fall - not showy.

Habit: Upright growing when young. As the tree matures the head becomes broader as the branches grow more horizontally.

Size: 15 to 20 feet tall to nearly 15 feet wide.

Sun Exposure: Full sun to very light shade. The color will fade in more shade.

Native Habitat: Japan

Other Features:

Description: ‘Trompenburg’ is another upright Japanese Maple - at least as vigorous as ‘Bloodgood’ and holds its color equally as well. The leaf is a little bit different, having a slight curl at the edge of the lobes. This gives it a different effect from any of the other maples that we grow. I like ‘Trompenburg’ very much - we are propagating a lot of them.
