MATSUMURAE, red. The handsome hues of this maple contrast well with other red-leaved forms. There is a slight purple cast to the red, with an undertone of green showing through. Midsummer, the leaves become deep green with a reddish tone. Rapid early growth, developing into a round topped form. Outside limbs appear to have a cascading shape with maturity on this sparsely branched, shrubby tree.
