Acer Palmatum Group: Dissectum - Red
The colour and vigour of this cultivar is outstanding. The leaf colour is the same red-orange of the gemstone garnet. When this maple is grown in shade, the leaves retain a greenish cast, but in a sunny location the garnet colour develops well. It has the pendulous spreading habit of dissectums and as it matures, forms a beautiful, cascading, mound-shaped specimen. The leaves are large for a dissectum, and the deep colour holds well into the summer season. The seven lobes separate entirely to the leaf base. The side incisions on the each lobe are neither as deeply cut nor as delicate. The whole leaf appears a little coarser than most red dissectums.
