fireglow japanese maple

zola_nySeptember 9, 2006

i recently purchased a fireglow japanese maple. i wanted the fireglow for its ability to take full sun without losing its color. At the very upscale,and reputable nursery i asked why the color was not like the one i have at home (in full sun) and they said it may be because they have theirs in shade. could this be so or was he just trying to get rid of stock, and how long will it take the leaves to brighten if i put it in full sun. i dont want to plant yet because i want to see if its the right tree. thanks in advance

Most of the red foliaged acer palmatum will display more green to the leaves if kept in shade - Fireglow no exception.
