Japanese maple Skeeter's Broom is a witch's broom found on an older and popular variety Bloodgood. It differs from the parent plant in more ways - it is smaller, more compact, and has foliage of a richer red.

Skeeter's Broom maple produces deciduous, palmate, 5-lobed leaves which emerge glowing crimson red in early spring and mature to burgundy red in summer, while at the tips of all branches new bright red leaves keep on growing almost all summer long. In autumn they turn vivid carmine red. The plant is very dense and forms a naturally multi-stemmed shrub of columnar habit. During the growing season the foliage density makes it non-transparent.

Japanese maples need constantly moist soil that has to be well-drained, acidic to neutral, and medium fertile. Keep it mulched all year round. It will love a location with high air humidity, e.g. at a river bank or near a pond but it is not a must. Grow it in full sun for best colour. Fully hardy to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5).
