Acer palmatum 'Crimson Queen'

Lace Leaf Japanese Red Maple, Dissected Leaf Japanese Red Maple

Sculptural, cascading branches and finely dissected, colorful leaves make this classic selection one of the finest of the deep red laceleafs. Foliage emerges bright crimson, deepens to burgundy in summer and finishes with brilliant scarlet in fall, maintaining its color despite summer heat and humidity. The elegant, mounding plant produces a dense, broadly spreading structure that makes a dramatic impact near water, on a bank or in a courtyard scene.(Iseli Nursery)

Prune as needed to keep overall shape of tree. Pruning is best done in mid-winter when branch structure is fully visible and to prevent excessive bleeding that can occur with spring pruning.
