    A linearilobum maple that has deep green leaves and dark purple colored stems. This medium upright is a strong grower. Fall colors are yellow and orange. Height to 10 ft.

    A very sturdy upright linearilobum. Mine does not have purple stems; they are mostly green.

    There is also a rubrum form of this tree(although the coloration is more like that of an atropurpureum).

    I've really been enjoying this tree this spring... so many flowers, and such great color!

    This was the same tree last fall. I'm a bit worried about the blackening on the twigs, but it arrived like that from Conifer Kingdom and when I've cut branches there's no blackening on the inside.

    Could have been a little sunburn on the branches if it looked clean inside. The new growth looks strong, which would be unlikely if there was a serious infection.

    Thanks so much for replying, Matt. I really appreciate it. The area does get a lot of sun.

    The samaras on this tree are outstanding-- so many, and so bright. From across the yard it looks like the tree is covered with pink flowers

    This is a replacement for the tree I posted last year. It ended up dying, and those branches with the blackening were the first to go.

    This new tree is putting out some interesting new growth-- very red, and often with wider leaves. It's a very pretty contrast to the old growth.
