Why plant Crimson Prince Japanese Maple?

Looks sharp in all seasons! Crimson Prince Japanese Maple is a colorful, classy specimen tree that never has an off-day. First, the leaves emerge a simmering, shocking red color, glowing in the cool spring sunshine. Later, the foliage shifts to a rich, regal burgundy-red. When crisp weather arrives in fall, the leaves take on bright crimson tones once more. Even in winter, Crimson Prince is handsome, with its smooth, muscular branches on full display. Plant this striking, sculptural tree in any of the formal borders surrounding your home, but preferably in a high-visibility area. A focal point par excellence!

The standard in upright, red-leaved Japanese Maples is Bloodgood, a variety that may have originated in a New York City nursery in the 1790s. Crimson Prince is a seedling of Bloodgood that many consider to be superior to the original. It is said to hold its good red color better in the summer’s heat, to grow faster, and to be more cold-hardy than Bloodgood. It was discovered by the late William Flemer III of Princeton Nurseries in New Jersey, and it was patented in 1988. Bill Flemer was a passionate grower who was responsible for introducing 62 new varieties of plants to the world.

How to use Crimson Prince Japanese Maple in the landscape?

Crimson Prince is a more upright grower than Bloodgood, which tends to spread out with age. Crimson Prince is also more densely branched, and makes a thick column of deep red foliage that blocks views into your garden during the growing season.

How To Plant Crimson Prince Japanese Maple

Crimson Prince Japanese Maple is happiest in moderate climates where winters are neither too frigid, nor summers too hot and steamy. In the warmer parts of its range, it appreciates some shade from the afternoon sun, though it can be grown in full sun where summers are mild. Wind protection is advisable in sites exposed to freezing winter winds. Crimson Prince isn’t fussy about soil, as long as it isn’t wet. Like most Maple Trees, it does occasionally fall prey to verticillium wilt, a fungal disease present in some soils. The disease is more likely to attack stressed trees, and proper cultural care is the best means of defense against it.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care. We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*For Big trees and Shrubs, Size XL and bigger: Review our Seasonal Shipping Timelines and Policy here.

Your trees and plants are grown across the United States at various Bower & Branch Growers. Depending on your location, your plant orders may be shipped from various locations. Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.

Shipping Delays:

From time to time, Bower & Branch Growers may determine to delay order shipment based on various factors for plant health. Weather in your region, as well as, where your plants are grown, is always considered when shipping. Extreme weather conditions may delay some or all of your order. Bower & Branch allows our Growers to make final shipping decisions based solely to benefit your trees and plants’ health and success.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
