‘Tamukeyama’ is our favorite Red Cutleaf Japanese Maple. It gives a reasonable growth rate in the Southeast, and in 10 years time becomes the size and shape of a Volkswagon. Another 10 years and it will approach Microbus stature. The purple-red foliage is top flight and is noticeably unfazed by intense sunlight and heat. Branching is elegantly layered and cascades softly.
