Japanese Maple Twombly's Red Sentinel
Twombly’s Red Sentinel Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum ‘Twombly’s Red Sentinel’ is a vigorous, upright, red tree that develops an unusually columnar habit allowing it to fit into a smaller space than forms with broad canopies. Leaves maintain their dramatic red color all season long, and after they drop, the branches continue the colorful display. They darken to a deep, warm red that stands out against the grays and whites of winter. Found by Ken Twombly, Twombly Nursery, Monroe, Connecticut.
