Acer palmatum Attraction
'Attraction', also known as Superbum, is a vigorous grower ultimately reaching a height of 15 feet in the landscape. Leaves emerge a bright red with a purplish hue that deepens in summer. Fall color is a bright crimson. Although 'Attraction' is as hardy as Bloodgood, its leaves may burn in hot sun. This cultivar was a chance seedling from Japan in 1970, imported into the Netherlands, and introduced into the United States a few years later by Maplewood Nursery.
