Acer palmatum 'Mikawa yatsubusa' Dwarf Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum 'Mikawa yatsubusa' Dwarf Japanese Maple
from $49.00
One of the best dwarf maples, 'Mikawa yatsubusa' is very slow growing with closely arranged leaves that create a wonderful stubby upright tree. Short inter nodal lengths with leaves that layer over one another not only define this elegant small tree but make it difficult to propagate and quite rare in nurseries. Fall color can range from bright yellow to spectacular red. This great little plant was found in the 1970s in the Tōkai region of Japan and named after the old Mikawa province there.

Acer palmatum 'Red Dragon' Dwarf Japanese Maple
from $49.00
'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 Feet Spring Color: Red Summer Color: Red Fall Color: Crimson Sun Tolerance: Partial Planting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil
Acer palmatum 'Orangeola' - mapleridgenursery Acer palmatum 'Orangeola' Red Dwarf Japanese Maple (Pre-Order) - Maple Ridge Nursery
Acer palmatum 'Orangeola' Red Dwarf Japanese Maple
from $49.00
'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.

The leaves then turn orange-red in fall. ‘Kurenai jishi’ is a dwarf Japanese maple that will only reach about 4 feet tall at maturity. 10 Year Size: Height: 3-5 feet Width: 1-3 feet

Acer palmatum 'Seiryu' Green Japanese Maple (Pre-Order)
from $49.00
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.

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.  Trees listed as Pre-order are not yet available and will not ship immediately.

Acer palmatum 'Otome zakura' Corallinum Japanese Maple
from $39.00
Acer palmatum ‘Otome zakura’ is a member of the Corallinum group of Japanese maples and is one of our favorites. All of these Corallinum type Japanese maples leaf out very early in the spring, and when they do, ‘Otome zakura’ has some of the brightest red foliage you can imagine. This incredible red color typically holds through April. The colors then transition to orange and then eventually green by the end of May. Much like other Corallinum type Japanese maples and maybe more than the others, ‘Otome zakura’ will usually push new growth in the summer which resembles the bright red foliage of spring. This red new growth on top of the olive green foliage is extremely attractive. Fall color is then orange to red. ‘Otome zakura’ also grows with a very attractive, open form. 10 Year Size: Height: 8-10 feet Width: 4-6 feet
