This cultivar was selected by the Trompenburg Arboretum in the Netherlands. It is actually a hybrid between acer palmatum and acer shirasawanum. The unusual leaves have 7 to 9 lobes. Each lobe is long-ovate, with edges that curl down almost forming a tube. This extraordinary leaf gives an unusual and pleasing effect. The foliage color is also an outstanding deep purple-red which lasts exceptionally well into late summer. Even in full sun the leaves do not burn but later change to a deep, reddish green and bronze. The fall color of crimson completes a year of great color on Trompenburg.
​It is an upright growing cultivar, that grows quickly and can reach up to 5m high. This cultivar has become a favorite in landscaping and received the RHS award.

In gardenshops all around Europe you may find Trompenburg grown from a cutting. We bought one of these years back, and it unfortunately died due to root problems, which is not a surprise for maples that are grown from cuttings. In contrast, our Trompenburgs are all grafted for maximum quality and strength.
