Acer laevigatum 'Hong Long'  (evergreen maple, smooth maple, Nepal maple) is an EXTREMELY RARE, small evergreen tree with deep maroon/reddish purple new growth which slowly fades to a reddish green/green by summer.  Acer laevigatum 'Hong Long' has a stunning, near black  (dark purple) trunk and branches when young.  As tree ages, the trunk will slowly become a deep gray.  Acer laevigatum 'Hong Long' is very fast growing and is one of the most exciting new maples we have seen in a long time and can be used as a stunning specimen in your garden wherever a small, evergreen tree is needed.
