Orangeola Japanese Maple is not quite as red as many other laceleaf weeping Japanese maples, but the foliage is orange-red when it first emerges in spring. By mid-summer, the color is a mix of burgundy and muted green. Acer palmatum Orangeola’s dramatically cascading habit and long-term seasonal interest make it one of our favorites. The second flush of summer growth repeats the bright spring show and produces a beautiful contrast against the older foliage. Dark red and fiery orange-red colors finish the display in fall.
