This selection is perhaps the most dissected, finely-cut Japanese maple on the market. The leaves are purple-red, becoming scarlet in autumn. Belonging to the Dissectum Group, it has a mounding habit. Wonderful subject for a patio container. Provide shade from hot sun and winds as the leaves may burn.
