Acer palmatum ‘Hefner’s Red’ is an upright Japanese maple similar to and, according to some, superior to Bloodgood. It’s a compact grower, comes out in the spring with vibrant red leaves and turns to a very deep red as summer approaches. Hefner’s Red does a great job of holding that deep red color right into the fall and even holds it’s color when shaded. Hefner’s Red Japanese Maple only gets ten to twelve feet high and, as with all small trees, it can be kept trimmed to a lower height if that’s what you need.
