Acer Palmatum Group: Dissectum - Green
Upright growing dissectums are unusual. Almost all other dissectums cascade or weep. Leaves are a pleasing bright green. Each leaf is yellow-green ad tipped with reddish tones as it unfolds in the spring. The colour soon changes to a uniform light green, though later in summer, on exposed leaves, the reddish tones reappear on the margins. Fall colours are quite spectacular and range from strong gold to light yellows with a suffusion of crimson. The leaves are slightly smaller and chunkier than most other green dissectums. The leaf stalks are short and stiff. The bark is a dark, brown-green. The new shoots are stiff, not willowy.
Height: 2.4 - 6 metres
