Baton Rouge Dwarf Coral Bark Maple
This another great new smaller addition to the color bark group of Japanese maples. Baton Rouge Dwarf Coral Bark Maple was discovered as a sport in Houston, Texas. This smaller stature tree is a beautiful stand out in the Winter landscape, displaying bright red branches sure to brighten any day. Not much is known about this new variety, but Baton Rouge Dwarf Coral Bark Maple has a very strong resemblance to one of my favorites, Fjellheim Dwarf Coral Bark Japanese maple. My estimate is that Baton Rouge will reach a maximum size of 8 feet or so, with a bushy form.
