My Nicholsonii was not easy to find, so if you find one--buy it! Mine is planted right up front in full sun (Pacific NW) and in fall always turns a beautiful outstanding RED--not the same color of red like a Crimson Queen or Red Dragon but a definite red. I have not found it to be a fast grower but it is growing steadily. As always, buy a 'junior' or larger size if you can--the infants take too long!

This selection is valued mostly for its fall colour, a mix of golden yelow and orange-red. The spring leaves emerge reddish-purple but turn green in summer. This Matsumurae Group maple was first described in 1893.
