A wonderful japonicum dissectum maple, with large intricately dissected leaves and unusual low and spreading cascading form. Great for covering a rockery or cascading down a bank. Can be staked for higher layers and more upright form. Distinctive upright seed pairs in colors from chartreuse to magenta provide extra flair. Bright green in summer and spring, fall colors are vibrant shades of gold, orange, red and purple. Uniform moisture, well drained bark-rich soil, full sun or partial shade.
