Description: ‘Trompenburg’ is another upright Japanese Maple – at least as vigorous as ‘Bloodgood’ and holds its color equally as well. The leaf is a little bit different, having a slight curl at the edge of the lobes. This gives it a different effect from any of the other maples that we grow. I like ‘Trompenburg’ very much – we are propagating a lot of them.
