Japanese Maples and Conifers

Acer japonicum 'Green Cascade'

As the name implies, this is a cascading or weeping form of japonicum. The leaves on mature plants can be quite large. These leaves are deeply dissected and in spring are a brilliant bright green. The overall shape of Green Cascade is quite different than the weeping palmatums in that it looks more like a sprawling octopus, when young, than a tight bush. It however becomes much more dense with age. Like other japonicums it is in fall that ‘Green Cascade’ really shines. Fall color is awesomely brilliant with red, yellow and orange all on the same leaves.

10 Year Size: Height:  4-5 Feet    Width:  5-8 Feet
