This superb female clone produces a good oval crown at maturity with an autumn display that is hard to beat.
An aptly named variety it was patented in the States in 1961 and introduced by the now closed Princeton Nursery. Widely planted along with ‘Red Sunset’ and regarded as one of the best selections.
Its stunning display of vivid red and burgundy leaves in October / November is all the more memorable by the length of time they are held on the tree. This clone rivals Liquidambar for its brilliant autumn display and is a great tree for parks and gardens.
