Acer palmatum 'Red Dragon'
from $35.00
'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 'Waterfall'
from $35.00
‘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 'Orange Dream'
from $35.00
Acer palmatum ‘Orange Dream’ is one of the first trees to announce that spring is here and does so with eye popping color. The yellow, orange and red of early spring turns first more yellow then to a subtle green for summer. In hotter climates this cultivar should be sited in partial shade,  In cooler climates the orange lasts much longer into the summer. Fall color is bright orange or sometimes red. This cultivar was first selected at Fratelli Gilardelli Nursery in Italy in the late 1980s.10 Year size:  Height:  10-12  Feet    Width:  6-8  FeetSpring Color: YellowSummer Color: GreenFall Color: OrangeSun Tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palamtum 'Kandy Kitchen' was found as a witches broom in Pennsylvania by Joe Stupka of Stupka Nursery in the late 1990's. This small upright shrub like tree boasts a wide array of colors, appearing first cherry red but then as the older leaves darken to maroon, new more pink leaves emerge at the tips.

Acer palmatum 'Ruslyn in Pink'
from $35.00
Acer palmatum 'Ruslyn in the Pink' has rather large leaves for a dwarf. The foliage first appears pink or orange pink in early spring depending on the amount of sunlight it receives. The foliage begins to darken to red and then purple within a few weeks. As summer takes over from spring older growth eventually fades from purple to bronze and eventually olive green. Any late summer growth comes out with the pink color from early spring. The fall color crimson and is very dramatic for a small tree. 'Ruslyn in the Pink' was discovered by Vern Palmeter at Ruslyn Nursery in New Platz, New York. 10 year size: Height: 4-5 Feet   Width: 3-4 Feet    Spring Color: PinkSummer Color: BurgundyFall Color: CrimsonSun Tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Red Pygmy'
from $35.00
'Red Pygmy' may not be the best named linearilobum but it is one of the best all around Japanese Maples. Although slower growing than some of the vigorous forms of  linearilobum, 'Red Pygmy' can attain heights of more than 15 feet with age. While it comes out red in spring and may hold color into the summer in some areas, 'Red Pygmy' quickly turns green as temperatures begin to rise in hot climates. The green is a dark rich green throughout the summer then as a startling contrast this plant will turn bright yellow or gold in fall. 'Red Pygmy ' leaves have some of the narrowest lobes of the red linearilobums often having an interesting twist in the lobe. 'Red Pygmy' tolerates sun well.  The changes in color and the very graceful shape make this a must have plant for collectors and occasional gardeners alike.10 year size:  Height: 5-7 Feet   Width: 3-5 FeetSpring Color: RedSummer Color: GreenFall Color: YellowSun Tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Omure yama'
from $35.00
When young, Acer palmatum 'Omure yama' may develop a leader and grow up, but as the tree reaches maturity the long slender new growth cascades down, giving the tree the weeping look that it is known for. Some growers stake 'Omure yama' when young to help it attain initial height from which to weep from. Plants that never develop a leader become wide weeping mounds not much different than the growth habit of many dissectums. I have heard other authors claim that this or that variety has the best fall color of any Japanese maple. I would not have the audacity to claim that about any cultivar but year in and year out I would say the reds, oranges and yellows of  'Omure yama' in fall are at least equal to any other variety we grow.10 Year Size:  Height: 6-10 Feet Width: 8-10 FeetSpring Color: GreenSummer Color: GreenFall Color: Orange RedSun Tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Shojo nomura'
from $35.00
'Shojo nomura' means "beautiful red faced monkey" and this vivid image seems to fit this wonderful small tree. Decidedly upright, 'Shojo nomura' emerges dark purple almost black in early spring but later growth is decidely red and seems to be more red than purple most of the season. It holds its color in our gardens as long as any upright palmatum we grow and if it does fade to green in very hot years it never bronzes out like other red cultivars. Also it seems to hold it's color better in shade than most varieties. Brilliant effects can be obtained by planting this tree where its translucent leaves can be back lit by the morning or evening sun. Fall color is red and usually outstanding.10 Year Size: Height:  16-18 feet    Width:  6-8 feetSpring Color: BurgundySummer Color: CopperFall Color: RedSun Tolerance: FullPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Chantilly Lace'
from $35.00
‘Chantilly Lace’ was found at Red Maple Nursery in 1949 and introduced by Billy Shwartz. This great Japanese maple with the Rock and Roll name has very finely cut leaves.  New growth appears red but very quickly changes to green from the center of the leaf out. This effect gives the plant almost a variegated appearance. By summer the foliage is light green almost chartreuse and contrasts greatly with other green maples that start yellow-green only to darken as summer approaches. Fall color is bright raspberry red. 'Chantilly Lace' grows into an irregular mound, some pruning of unruly branches will add to it's appeal.10 Year Size: Height: 4-6 feet Width: 6-8 feetSpring Color: PeachSummer Color: GreenFall Color: Raspberry RedSun Tolerance: Shade Planting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil
Acer palmatum 'Green Hornet' - Maple Ridge Nursery
Acer palmatum 'Green Hornet'
from $35.00
'Green Hornet' is unusually fast growing for a lace leaf maple and because of this it can benefit greatly from pruning or training when young to get it started in the right direction. Shoots on newly grafted plants may grow 2 feet or more the first year. As the plant ages its vigorous growth becomes an asset creating a graceful plant with long arching branches. Spring growth is lime green sometimes with orange margins when placed in more sun, however at least partial shade is preferred in hotter climates. Fall color is stunning and bright red which is quite rare for green dissectums which usually display yellow to orange fall color. 10 Year Size:   Height:  4-6 Feet    Width:  7-9 FeetSpring Color: Lime GreenSummer Color: GreenFall Color: RedSun Tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Sekka yatsabusa'
from $35.00
Acer palmatum ‘Sekka yatsabusa’ has short internodal lengths that give this small plant a very different appearance as the leaves are bunched up along the stems. Red edges to the deeply divided leaves and red petioles add to the effect. All though very slow when young this small tree can grow quite vigorously under the right conditions. Once the tree gets a little older it begins to develop very interesting fasciations or flattened stems of congested growth. While like most maples 'Sekka yatsubusa' is happy in partial shade this adaptable cultivar does quite well in heavy shade or in full sun in all but the hottest climates. Fall color is usually red and very good, some years it can be quite stunning. 10 year size: Height: 3-5 Feet   Width: 2-4 Feet  Spring Color: GreenSummer Color: GreenFall Color: RedSun Tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer japonicum 'Gossamer' Full Moon Japanese Maple
from $35.00
‘Gossamer’ is reportedly a cross between Acer japonicum and Acer palmatum dissectum. This cultivar should probably be listed as Acer japonicum x palmatum 'Gossamer' if this is the case. I have not seen it listed that way. No matter what you call it this is one cool little tree and deserves more attention. Very slow growing when young eventually reaching 10 feet or more with age. The deeply divided foliage almost appears linearilobum like. Beautiful medium green color in spring turning gold, orange and red in autumn. 10 Year Size: Height:  3-5 Feet    Width:  2-3 FeetSpring Color: GreenSummer Color: GreenFall Color: Gold, Orange, and RedSun Tolerance: Partial Shade

Acer palmatum 'Corallinum'
from $35.00
Acer palmatum 'Corallinum' represents a fine example of a whole group of similar maples that emerge salmon-pink to pinkish-red in spring. These 5 lobed semi dwarf trees are all known for there spectacular spring displays. More pink than 'Shinde shojo' or Beni maiko', Corallinum really stands out in the garden. Even the new stems and petioles are pink to red. Though a fantastic tree it tends to always be leggy in pots and never really fills in until planted in the ground for a couple of years. Also 'Corallinum is never as pink for us in the Southeast as it is for people in cooler climates. After turning green in early June we are usually treated to a second burst of color in August with the new flush of pinkish-red new leaves. Fall color is usually an orange-red to pink-red. 10 Year Size: Height: 5-7 feet    Width: 3-4 feet
