name says it all, viridis means green in Latin and 'Viridis' is the
standard by which all green dissectums are judged. Many of the oldest,
most beautiful and stately Japanese maples in America are this
cultivar. There has been some confusion over whether or not 'Viridis'
should have cultivar
status since at one time any green dissectum was called Viridis.
Although there may be different cultivars being sold under this name, I
have seen trees labeled as 'Viridis' from all over the U.S. and most
seem to be the same excellent cultivar. Light green foliage in
spring, yellow to gold fall color and a nice weeping habit that make
show stopper in any garden.
