Skeeters Broom is a very nice dwarf Acer palmatum that arose from a witch's broom of Bloodgood. Skeeters broom has bright red spring color, becoming burgandy red foliage in the summer, and bright red again in the Fall. As typical with witch's brooms, Skeeters has a leaf with a truncated central lobe. Stronger and easier to grow than some of the other witches brooms. Very hardy and tolerates heat well. It forms a beautiful narrow upright tree to 6'.
