I have this small tree growing near my home. It is a slow grower but steady and fairly narrow so far. Very nice Japanese maple with no problems in the three years it has been growing here.

This selection, despite its name, did not originate in Boskoop, Netherlands, rather, it originated in a nursery in Oregon! It looks essentially like 'Bloodgood' or 'Atropurpureum', but is a little lower (although it will reach to 8 m). The spring leaves are pinkish-red turning to plum-red in summer and then to deep purplish-red in fall.
