Ice Dragon® Maple – Jack Frost® Collection

Ice Dragon® is a welcome addition to the Jack Frost® series. An all-season, small garden maple, bred and selected to tolerate Zone 4 winters, while retaining the refined qualities of the less hardy Japanese maples. Spring begins as leaves unfurl blushed orange-red, quickly maturing to green. In summer, the finely divided, delicate appearing green leaves are durable and tolerant of sun and heat. Autumn brings foliage of a kaleidoscope of yellow, orange and red. After leaf drop, the sinuous undulating branch structure is a visual treat during the long cold winter months.
