Cutting grown from a seedling selected by Dr. Michael Dirr at the University of Georgia Botanical Garden, Acer palmatum ’Glowing Embers’ is a very vigorous, upright-growing, green-leaf form that turns orange-purple in the fall with excellent heat tolerance so it has been adopted by a number Georgia tree growers. Shows little leaf scorch in the South unlike most A. palmatum selections. Expect to reach tree size of 20 feet or better. Available for nursery pickup only; too large to ship. Zones 5-8.
