Acer palmatum 'Tamukeyama'

Laceleaf leaf Japanese Red Maple

First listed in 1710 in Japan, this extremely vigorous cultivar of superior quality has survived the test of time. Long, cascading branches produce spring foliage that is bright crimson and summer foliage that turns dark, purple-red and retains its color even in hot, humid summers. In fall, the rediscovered tree's foliage, which is bold and more coarsely dissected than other selections, changes to scarlet. The wider-than-tall cultivar performs beautifully by a water feature or enriching a Japanese style garden.(Iseli Nursery)
