Acer palmatum 'Garnet'
Lace Leaf Japanese Red Maple, Dissected Leaf Japanese Red Maple
Rich, red-purple foliage distinguishes this vigorous, spreading laceleaf, and its large, broadly dissected leaves maintain their color well despite heat and humidity. With a more upright habit than other mounding types, it is among the largest, so its handsome stature can be used to make a dynamic contribution to larger garden spaces, serving as a focal point or part of a mixed planting. Received Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. (Iseli Nursery)
