    Fall color shot. Interesting deeply divided leaf that is red-green in the spring and later becomes purplish in the summer.

    According to Vertrees, 'Inazuma' is supposed to turn "bright red crimson tones after fall frosts" but according to Velderen it should turn "brilliant orange red".

    This tree was unlabeled when I bought it and I identify it as Inazuma. Do you agree ?

    PS : Could be also 'Iijima sunago' or 'Yugure'

    I have a 7 foot inazuma. It was spectacular dark red last fall but this year a hard freeze has really screwed up the fall show. The frozen leaves turned olive brown and curled upward but a little color is now trying to come through although it will be nothing like last year. Here is one of the recovering leaves

    Inazuma has been a vigorous maple in our garden- this tree is 12 years in this spot. It may be close to 20' wide.

    Great tree !
    Is it a recent picture ?

    Does it produce seeds and did you try to sow it ?
    If yes, what about the seedlings, are they similar to the parent tree ?

    Andre,
    Set seed? So many that they are weeds! We have transplanted a few and grown them on; they are too young to know if they will have that great form. The picture was taken this April.

    It would be interesting if you could post a leaf of the parent tree near a leaf of one of its seedling just to see the difference.

    PS : if you have too much seeds, I can send you my address ;-)
