Acer palmatum ‘Red Feather’
In the mid 1980s our mother ‘Burgundylace’ bore a delightful offspring, a red head like herself, but very petite and extremely delicate. We've watched her mature with consistently fine features and feel she is now ready to go out into the world.
‘Red Feather’ makes up faster and fuller than ‘Red Filigree Lace’ without manipulating it to do so. The leaves are just as fine but the color is a bit more subtle, almost smokey. The branches layer attractively and the leaves feather out all over the plant. Discovered by former manager, Ronald Byleckie.
