    A sturdy cultivar fast growing and fantastic fall color.

    'Herbstfeuer' means Autum fire in German. It is a chance seedling and C. Van Gelderen says in his book that it maybe a hybrid between A. palmatum and A. circinatum.
    Here are two close ups of the leaves in spring. Pictures taken this week.

    New 7/11/08. This tree was grafted 5 years ago.

    'A unique cultivar that is probably a cross of Acer palmatum and A. circinatum. Dark green leaves through out the summer months with a slight "fuzz" on the leaf. Very stiff, upright growing tree that is wide spreading to 20 ft at maturity. Outstanding fall display that is brilliant orange. 'Herbstfeuer' means "autumn fire" (German)'


    No matter what kind of cross it is, I love it already! It has a very different look about it. The leaves are held horizontally on brilliant red petioles, and have a "floppy" appearance to them. This is especially evident in the last picture - almost like cloth that is being draped over something. The red from the petioles continues into the leaf veins for a very attractive effect. Looks like it will be quite vase shaped. Can't wait to see the fall color!

    Very nice sharing all those pictures, but please verify if the cultivar you want to post has already a thread in the Gallery, to avoid duplication

    Oops! I thought I did! My bad. :(

    Sorry, Gomero! Maybe the moderator could combine the threads.
