'Red Pygmy'
ap red pygmy ap red pygmy rrn

Medium sized, upright tree to 6-8'.  5 finely divided red lobes have good color all year round, becoming more scarlet in fall as seen here. Found in an Italian garden and introduced in the Netherlands in 1969. Similar to Atrolineare but leaves smaller, less drooping and more delicate. (In the right foreground is our unusual Acer Triflorum with outstanding yellow fall color; in the left background is our '68 Ford P/U which moved us here from Florida in 1970, lately just as sedentary as the trees).   Zones: USDA 6; Sunset 2-10, 12, 14-24, Alaska-3.
