Twombly's Sentinel Dwarf Japanese Maple for Sale Online
Twombly's Red Sentinel (acer palmatum) is the only narrow, columnar Japanese maple tree available on the market today. It is related to the Bloodgood Japanese Maple but this cultivar can be credited to Ken Twombly. The Red Sentinel earns its name from its uniquely narrow profile.
This tree's leaves transition from a bright red in the spring, to a deep burgundy in the summer, and back to a fiery crimson in the fall. Keep an eye out for the reddish-purple spring blossoms that bloom on fully mature trees. The bark is a stunning red in winter as well, making Twombly's Red Sentinel brilliant year-round.
Your tree will mature slowly but grow to be 10 to 15 feet tall and stay between 3 and 6 feet wide. This profile makes Twombly's Red Sentinel perfect for narrow spaces, smaller zen or Japanese-style gardens, or for a pop of color against light backdrops.
Twombly's Red Sentinel Japanese Maple prefers partial to full sun, and waterings weekly (or biweekly in hotter temperatures).
