This extremely vigorous selection has dark, purple-red leaves that rival, and maybe even surpass those of ‘Bloodgood’, the standard for Japanese Maples. The result is a colorful, big, beefy specimen tree that will define your landscape. ‘Emperor I’ is easy to grow and will thrive in most sunny or partially shaded landscape exposures, remaining attractive and colorful even into fall when foliage becomes an even darker crimson-red before finally falling.
