    From the first Google result:

    Acer palmatum 'Dragon's Fire' is stunning lace leaf maple with leaves that emerge a dark purple in spring. In the fall the leaves will age to fire like colors of orange, red and yellow that are reminiscent of 'dragon fire'. 'Dragon's Fire' forms a fairly dense round shrub and will grow to 3' tall x 3' wide in 10 years

    Purchased as a 1 Gallon from Mr. Maple in December 2021 and planted immediately upon arrival. Finally leafing out in May 2022.

    Very long internodes !! This is going to be interesting to watch. I am a sucker for the Laceleafs.

    Me too! I already had a ‘Red Dragon’ so why not add a ‘Dragon’s Fire’ to the collection!
