I'm not entirely sure we have this exact maple, but it is a dwarf, threadleaf, and very diminutive. My husband bought it at a nursery and it has stayed about the same 3-ft. size. We planted it on a landscaped hill that we are going to add a waterfall to...it is quite picturesque and the coloring is dramatic. We live in an area full of live oaks -- so this burst of color is most welcome. We also planted a non-fruiting olive nearby. This type of tree is delightfully small, but packs a punch of personality.

This dwarf maple belongs to the dissectum group. It originally grew as a witch's-broom on another larger dissectum Japanese maple. The broom was propagated and released as 'Baby Lace' in the early 1980's. This selection has reddish-orange spring leaves, bronzy-green summer foliage and a mix of yellow, orange and red in the fall. Plants will top off at 1 m making them ideal for bonsai or containers.
