Fowler Maples

'Enkan' has some of the thinnest leaves of any red Japanese maple.  This linearilobum group maple also maintains its reddish purple coloration better than most Japanese maples available.  The strap like leaf lobes are very thin on average, giving the tree a thin layered appearance.  Despite the delicate appearance, 'Enkan' resists leaf scorch very well in hot summers.
