Acer circinatum Dels Dwarf
Del's Dwarf is a very colorful circinatum that emerges bronze and orange in the spring. Leaves are smaller than the species and perhaps thicker.

Acer circinatum Bort’s Broom
Bort's Broom is a very showy green Acer circinatum broom that tolerates the sun real well. It prefers mooring sun afternoon shade, but can take some hot sun - as long as its not all day. In the sun Bort's Broom green leaves bronze out to a very attractive cherry red. Borts Broom is a dwarf maple that tend to grow in a bush fashion with branching mostly basal. Like all brooms, this arose as a sport or mutation on a wild circinatum. Growth is dense and rather fast when young. Graft bulge can be present in some plants. Borts broom will grow to about 4 feet.
Aka hosada is very nice new strap-leaf selection that is very sun hardy and very red. Aka hosasa tends to hold it’s color better than any other Linearlobium and even in mid summer heat. A small upright maple to about 6-8'. Zones 6-9.
Acer circinatum Pacific Fire
Pacific Fire is my favorite cultivar of Acer circinatum. Pacific Fire has flaming red bark in the winter that dazzles in the landscape with color. The orange - red bark has a waxy sheen to it that really makes the bark shine. Nice bronzing of the leaves when placed in full sun. A multibranching shrub/tree like the species but slower growing. Fall color is bright yellows with some orange which really make a show against the firery bark! 10 feet in 8 years. . Holds up well in the sun and heat... tends to become even more beautiful in the full sun. Will burn in extreme heat (> 90°) Hardy to -20 degrees. USDA zone 5.
These trees are green leafed species maples. That is they are seedlings of the genus Acer palmatum. They are beautiful in their own way all slightly different from one another. They are often hardier than cultivars and make a great choice for the gardener that is looking for a japanese maple for the first time. They are great for multiple plantings in the landscape or bonsai. Spring time color is light green with flecks of red from the leaf buds. As summer progresses the leaves turn a darker shade of green. Fall brings bright oranges and reds to the leaves. Very hardy. Under optimum conditions this tree can grow 30 feet high or more.
