Baton Rouge Japanese Maple
Fall color is bright yellows with some orange and red which really makes a show against the fiery bark! Does very well in the sun and heat, even in the south. Tends to become even more beautiful in the full sun.
Scientific Name: Acer palmatum ‘Baton Rouge’
USDA Zone: 5 - 8
Average Height: 10' - 12' in 10 years
Sun Exposure: Full sun to part shade
Baton Rouge has flaming red, waxy looking bark in the winter that dazzles the drab winter landscape with color. The leaves have some red tipping in the spring for a nice contrast to the branches. Nice bronzing of the leaves when placed in full sun.
