The Fireglow Japanese Maple (Botanical Name: Acer Palmatum Fireglow) stands as a captivating deciduous tree, thriving in environments with full sun and afternoon shade. With a recommended watering frequency of approximately 1 to 2 times a week and a preference for moist, well-draining soil, this maple variety flourishes within Zones 5 to 9.

This elegant tree exhibits a rounded plant shape, reaching a mature size of around 20 feet in height and 15 feet in width. Its alluring features extend into the blooming season of spring, where the Fireglow Maple showcases a breathtaking display of amazing crimson fall color and summer foliage in rich burgundy-red.
