Emperor I

Emperor I (aka Red Emperor I) is a cultivar developed from a seedling of Bloodgood. Red Emperor is considered to be superior over 'Bloodgood' with more brilliant red color throughout the growing season. Emperor I leafs out about a week later than Bloodgood in the spring, so it's not as frost susceptible early in the season. More tolerant of heat than Bloodgood. Bright red fall color. Upright growing 20 feet. Full sun, partial shade
