Fireglow Japanese Maple is a deciduous tree with an upright habit and thin palmate green foliage that emerges dark red and turns bright red in fall.  Small, non-showy but attractive umbels of red flowers bloom in spring followed by samaras.  Grows best in rich, moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Prefers full sun in cooler climates, but needs afternoon shade in southern areas.
