Acer palmatum Emperor 1. An outstanding, fast-growing upright Japanese maple. Excellent deep red foliage holds even better than
Acer Bloodgood!. Strong, hardy and easy to grow. Its 20-25' mature height makes it an excellent street tree or small yard specimen tree.
The Emperor 1 Japanaese Maple, is often called Red Emperor. This tree will not disappoint you. It leaves out about two weeks later
than most other Japanese Maples giving it the benefit of less spring frost damage. The growth rate is very good, and in the spring the
leaves are a stunning dark purple; fall color is a brilliant crimson red. Emperor 1 is very similar to 'Bloodgood' with a vigorous, upright
growth, but this tree has a lighter almost translucent quality to the leaves. It requires full sun in the northern areas, and afternoon shade in
the southern states. It is best to feed it once a year with a slow release fertilizer.

The Emperor I Japanese maple sets a new standard for red-leaf Japanese maples. The new growth
emerges in the spring a deep purple-red and holds the color better than the popular cultivar
‘Bloodgood’. In the fall the foliage changes to crimson. Vigorous in youth it will gain in size
quickly, but still mature into a medium sized tree, perfect for the urban garden. It tends to leaf out
later than many Japanese maples thereby avoiding the damage of any late frost.
