Description from Pacific Coast Maples
Acer Palmatum – ‘Orangeola’
Orangeola is a new addition to Pacific Coast Maples. This spectacular tree/shrub is one of the most outstanding laceleaf dissectums because of its unique orange color, thus the name ‘Orangeola’. Orangeola is known for its bright spring foliage and its delicately cascading branches. The leaves have a somewhat glossy appearance that adds to its beauty as the Sun shines through the tree. Orangeola’s finely dissected orange-red leaves make it a “showpiece” type tree. The orange colored leaves turn to a rich red-green as summer approaches. Weeks later a new flush of orange leaves arrive and continue throughout the summer. As the fall season arrives Orangeola’s leaves turn dark red before turning a beautiful orange-red. Orangeola performs well in the Sun, especially compared to other laceleaf cultivars. Orangeola is a vigorous grower, yet is one of the smaller laceleaf dissectums, reaching 10 feet in height when fully grown. Orangeola is usually taller than wide. Orangeola is a somewhat rare cultivar. Its unique growth and bright color contrast well with any landscape. Awards: Award of Merit at Boskoop, The Netherlands.
