This is on of my favorite trees to plant in Kansas City. ‘Emperor I’ is very similar to ‘Bloodgood’ in growth habit, although this tree has a lighter almost translucent quality to the leaves. It holds its red color well throughout the summer months, and has a brilliant crimson fall display. It grows to about a maximum of 15 feet tall and 7 feet wide. This tree does very well in Kansas City landsapes. it does best if protected from hot afternoon sun.
