Introducing Acer palmatum ssp. amoenum 'Scolopendrifolium rubrum Keiser' - the Dwarf Red Linear-leaf Maple, a beautifully unique addition to your garden. As a small bush, it grows in a mound and holds its striking red color throughout the summer. This cultivar may vary in terms of growth, ensuring that you will have a one-of-a-kind plant. Its strap-like leaves have finely but sharply tipped teeth around the margins of its lobes, giving it a delicate feel. Keizer has fast-growing juvenile shoots that produce broader lobes, making it a vigorous cultivar. In the fall, prepare to witness beautiful golden-yellow foliage. With a height of 5-6 feet and an appropriate exposure of sun to part shade, this variety is perfect for any outdoor space. Carlmont Nursery describes this cultivar to be very similar to ‘Red Pygmy’ but a little larger, with deep maroon leaves that hold their color well throughout the growing season. It is a strap-leaved type having very narrow leaflets that give it a unique appearance. Expect a great deal of variation when growing this plant from seed.
