The Korean Maple tree is native to the countries of Manchuria, Korea, and far eastern Russia. It is particularly noted for its colorful autumn leaves and hardiness in cold climates.
The Korean Maple grows to 15-30 feet and has a moderate growth rate. Creamy white flowers with purple bracts appear in April. Leaves are dark green and have 9 to 11 doubly serrate lobes. In fall, the leaves are a symphony of colors, turning yellow, orange and red. These trees will retain some of their leaves throughout winter.
Extremely adaptable and hardy, the Korean Maple tree prefers full sunlight to partial shade and grows best in well-drained, rich soil. Hardiness Zone: 4-8.
