Acer palmatum 'Tamukeyama' Dwarf Japanese Maple
from $39.00
Acer palmatum 'Tamukeyama' Dwarf Japanese maple has been grown in Japan for around 300 years. Recently it has become accepted as one of the best lace leaf varieties in cultivation, and probably the best red lace leaf for hot climates. 'Tamukeyama' not only tolerates but actually thrives in our hot Georgia summers even in full sun. 'Tamukeyama' Dwarf Japanese Maple is one of the fastest growing weeping Japanese maples we grow, slightly more irregular and upright than other lace leaf varieties. New growth is dark red in spring and holds very well especially in sunny locations. Fall color is a mix of fiery reds with a hint of orange undertone that predictably puts on one of the falls best shows. 10 Year Size: Height 6-8 Feet  Width 8-10 Feet Spring Color: Red Summer Color: Red Fall Color: Red Sun Tolerance: Full Planting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil Our 1 Gallon and 3 Gallon sizes are available for shipping and in store pickup.

Acer palmatum 'Orangeola'
from $39.00
'Orangeola' is one of the fastest growing dissectums but still does not attain height very quickly. This great plant changes personality all season long. It emerges with tones of green and orange in early spring  and as the sun works it's magic on the foliage it quickly turns purple. Next as spring turns into summer the older leaves start to slowly turn green, this process happens over a number of weeks during which the leaves appear molted with infused colors of green and purple washed across each leaf. About the time the entire plant becomes green in mid to late summer 'Orangeola' decides it is time to grow again, putting out red new growth that lays over the older foliage. Then in fall it really puts on a show with traffic stopping bright orange-red leaves. This plant does extremely well in hotter climates.10 Year Size  Height: 3-5 Feet      Width: 6-8 FeetSpring Color: RedSummer Color: GreenFall Color: Orange,RedSun Tolerance: FullPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Inaba shidare' Weeping Japanese Maple
from $39.00
Acer palmatum ‘Inaba shidare’ weeping Japanese maple is one of the best lace leaf cultivars for hotter climates, it's name means "like the cascading leaves of the rice plant" and has been grown since at least the mid 1800s in Japan. The leaves in early spring are very dark purple and I have heard them described as almost black. As summer approaches they become more red, then turning bronze before being one of the last maples in our gardens to finally give in to the Georgia heat and turn green. Fall color is usually bright fiery red. Acer palmatum 'Inaba shidare' weeping Japanese maple is a great tree to add some color to a sunny garden. 10 Year Size: Height: 4-6 Feet    Width: 7-9 Feet Spring Color: Dark Purple Summer Color: Bronze Fall Color: Bright Red Sun Tolerance: Full Planting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil Our 1 Gallon and 3 Gallon sizes are available for shipping and in store pickup.

Acer palmatum 'Germaine's Gyration' Green Lace Leaf Japanese Maple
from $39.00
‘Germaine’s Gyration’ was discovered by Bob Vandermoss and introduced by Andre Iselli for his mother Germaine. This outstanding dissectum variety does well in the south, tolerating even full sun. This is important because most green dissectums will not tolerate full sun as far south as Atlanta. Germaine's Gyration will become much wider than tall with the inner branching swirling around the main trunk in different directions making it obvious where the gyration part of the name came from. The outer form of the tree however is a very pleasant and fairly symmetrical mound. Fall color begins in October as a golden yellow first turning orange then almost red as the temperatures cool in November. 10 Year Size:   Height:  4-6 Feet    Width:  6-9 FeetSpring Color: GreenSummer Color: GreenFall Color: Yellow, OrangeSun Tolerance: Full SunPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Viridis' Green Lace Leaf Japanese Maple
from $39.00
The name says it all, ‘Viridis’ means green in Latin and 'Viridis' is the standard by which all green dissectums are judged. Acer palmatum 'Viridis' is a green lace leaf Japanese maple with light green foliage in spring, that usually darkens in the summer. 'Viridis' turns to a bright yellow to gold color in the fall. 'Viridis is a green lace leaf japanese maple with cascading branches and foliage that make this a show stopper in any garden. Many of the oldest, most beautiful and stately Japanese maples in America are this cultivar. 10 year size:  Height:  4-6 Feet    Width:  6-8 Feet Spring Color: Light Green Summer Color: Green Fall Color: Yellow Sun Tolerance: Partial Planting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Red Dragon'
from $39.00
'Red Dragon' will stay more red during summer than most varieties.  The coarse leaves begin the spring dark purple and become more red as temperatures increase.  By mid August in Georgia when summer temperatures reach their peak and most other red varieties have turned green 'Red Dragon' still has some bronze or slight bits of red left on it's leaves. Fall color is a dramatic crimson red. The growth habit of  'Red Dragon' is not as pendulous as other weeping cultivars, at times almost prostrate.  While 'Red Dragon' will tolerate full sun in some climates, it would prefer a break from the sun at some point during the day in hotter areas. Although 'Red Dragon is reported to be a moderate grower in some climates, we find it to be very slow in the south. 10 Year Size   Height: 3-5 Feet      Width: 5-6 FeetSpring Color: RedSummer Color: RedFall Color: CrimsonSun Tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil
Acer palmatum 'Crimson Queen' - mapleridgenursery Acer palmatum 'Crimson Queen' - mapleridgenursery
Acer palmatum 'Crimson Queen' Red Dwarf Japanese Maple
from $39.00
Introduced in 1965 ‘Crimson Queen’ has become the standard by which all red, lace leaf maples are judged and probably the most common dissectum grown in America. This is one of the very best Japanese maple dissectums. Its color, when in prime leaf, is unsurpassed. Crimson Queen will tolerate full sun, even in hot climates but it is much happier if it can be provided with a few hours shade during the day or indirect light. Under perfect conditions Crimson Queen can hold its red color as well or better than most cultivars. The growth habit is decidedly pendulous and will form a beautiful low mound only gaining height as it matures and begins to mound over itself. Crimson Queen left on it's own is beautiful and graceful but with a little training can become a specimen anyone could be proud of.10 year size: Height: 4-6 Feet    Width 6-8 FeetSpring Color: BurgundySummer Color: Green, BronzeFall Color: RedSun Tolerance: FullPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer japonicum 'Green Cascade' Full Moon Japanese Maple
from $39.00
‘Green Cascade’ is a cascading or weeping form of Acer 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 most weeping Acer palmatums in that it looks more like a sprawling octopus, when young, than a tight bush. It does, however become 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 FeetSpring Color: Bright GreenSummer Color: GreenFall Color: Yellow, Red, and OrangeSun Tolerance: Partial ShadePlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Waterfall'
from $39.00
‘Waterfall’ is almost identical to 'Viridis', but most experts consider 'Waterfall' to be more pendulous and smaller leafed. We see very little difference in shape or leaf size at our nursery, although it may be slightly slower growing. Where we do see a huge difference is in the fall color which in addition to the bright yellow and gold of 'Viridis', 'Waterfall' displays wonderful reds and oranges washed across the leaves. 10 year Size:     Height:  4-6 feet    Width:  6-8 Feet Spring Color: Green Summer Color: Green Fall Color: Yellow, Orange Sun Tolerance: Partial Planting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil Our 1 Gallon and 3 Gallon sizes are available for shipping and in store pickup.

Acer palmatum 'Heartbeat' Red Dwarf Japanese Maple
from $39.00
‘Heartbeat’ is an Australian cultivar that is just making its way into the gardening culture of the United States. 'Heartbeat' would be a great addition to any garden. The leaves are extremely dissected with lobes that are held very far apart, making the overall leaf almost appear round. The habit is very low and spreading forming a plant that is much wider than tall. Spring color is more red and less purple than other similar Japanese Maples. As summer approaches leaves turn first bronze then green but this vigorous grower seems to put on new red growth at the tips all summer long even in hot climates. Fall color is crimson.10 year size: Height 2-4 Feet Width 6-8 Feet Spring Color: RedSummer Color: BronzeFall Color: CrimsonSun Tolerance: FullPlanting: Elevated, Well drained soil

Acer palmatum 'Hana Matoi' Variegated Lace Leaf Japanese Maple
from $39.00
Hana matoi is probably the most exciting new Japanese Maple ever to hit the American market. The pink variegation is phenomenal. The variegation holds up well even in our hot climate and so far, it does not seem to  revert like some of the other variegated varieties. The spring foliage emerges purple with cream and pink variegation. As the temperatures rise heading into summer the base color changes from purple to green but the wonderful pink and cream variegation remain all summer.10 year size:   Height: 2-3 Feet   Width: 4-6 Feet

Acer palmatum 'Seiryu'
from $39.00
Its claim to fame is that Acer palmatum 'Seiryu' is considered the only upright dissectum. This is technically correct but the dissected leaf is the only similarity between 'Seiryu' and other dissectums. Actually the leaves are so much smaller, that even the leaves do not have the appearance of other dissectums. That being said, here at Maple Ridge Nurseries we love the plant we affectionately call the "weed" because it is so easy to grow. Seiryu is a fast growing  small tree that is mostly vase shaped when young growing wider and much rounder with age. The foliage appears green in spring with a slight red or pink tinge to the margins of  each leaf.  These margins quickly fade away leaving a very attractive medium green leaf for summer. Sometimes in late summer the colorful margins reappear, but this time a little more orange. Most literature describes the fall color as gold or yellow but I have never seen this except in photos from other parts of the world. In our climate the first cold air may give the tree an orange or red appearance but the leaves will always end up burgundy before dropping. 10 Year Size:   Height:  12-14 Feet    Width:  12-14 Feet Spring Color: Green Summer Color: Green Fall Color: Red Sun Tolerance: Sun Planting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil Our 1 Gallon and 3 Gallon sizes are available for shipping and in store pickup.

Acer palmatum 'Baldsmith' Lace Leaf Japanese Maple
from $39.00
In spring, ‘Baldsmith’ has leaves that emerge much more of a deep red than the burgundy color of most "red" Japanese Maples. Soon after, most of the leaf turns green leaving just the margins a very attractive red. The red and green of the bi color leaf at this stage makes the overall tree appear almost orange and gives it a very distinctive appearance. In some climates this look lasts well into the summer but in hotter climates where some afternoon shade would be greatly appreciated,  'Baldsmith' fades to green as summer takes hold. Fall color ranges from yellow to red to orange.Height: 4-6 Feet Width 6-8 Feet in ten yearsSpring Color: RedSummer Color: Green Fall Color: OrangeSun tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Dixie Spirit' - mapleridgenursery
Acer palmatum 'Dixie Spirit' Upright Lace Leaf Japanese Maple
from $39.00
Acer palmatum ‘Dixie Spirit’ is one of several different dissectum varieties that grows more upright rather than weeping. My father once told me that if anyone could ever discover a red version of ‘Seiryu’, then they would be a millionaire. While, I’ve learned that this was probably hyperbole, I have long been searching for a tree that fit this description. There are several trees currently on the market that come close such as ‘Lionheart’ and ‘English Lace’ but neither of these varieties have quite the same upward growth as ‘Seiryu’.‘Dixie Spirit’ is our introduction that fits into this category. ‘Dixie Spirit’ grows decidedly upright at least while young. We are still monitoring the tree to see if the upright habit continues in perpetuity. ‘Dixie Spirit’ shows off a gorgeous crimson red color in the spring while fading to a bronze or olive green in the summer. This tree shows out once again in the fall with bright red foliage. ‘Dixie Spirit’ can handle full sun even in Georgia with minimal leaf burn. 10 Year Size: Height: 8-10 feet Width: 4-6 feet

Acer palmatum 'Beni shidare' Red Lace Leaf Japanese Maple
from $39.00
Acer palmatum ‘Beni shidare’ is one of the most pendulous varieties we grow. It has deep purple red color in spring and maintains its color well into summer before turning bronze and then green. Fall color is  bright red and striking. This is probably one of the oldest red dissectum forms, as the name simply means red cascading, at one time all red weeping forms were given this name. Over time a superior clone must have been selected and remains in production today. Very old plants with this name still exist in Japan that are over 15  feet tall and 20 feet wide.10 year size:  Height: 3-4 Feet    Width 5-7 Feet
