Acer palmatum 'Tamukeyama' Dwarf Japanese Maple
from $35.00
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 'Inaba shidare' Weeping Japanese Maple
from $35.00
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 '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 japonicum 'Green Cascade' Full Moon Japanese Maple
from $35.00
‘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 'Baldsmith' Lace Leaf Japanese Maple
from $35.00
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 'Heartbeat'
from $35.00
‘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 'Washi-no-o'
from $35.00
The leaf of 'Washi-no-o’ is a little more coarse than some dissectums and the margins of each lobe are cut more regularly and less deep than most dissectums giving it a very unique texture. This mounding shrub type maple tolerates more sun than most green lace leafs. I have even grown this cultivar in full sun in Atlanta, Georgia but some shade would be appreciated. Fall color, which is always spectacular if sometimes a little later than some other maples, is usually bright yellow, although sometimes in sunnier locations the yellow will be mixed with orange.10 year size:  Height:  3-4 Feet    Width:  5-7 FeetSpring Color: GreenSummer Color: GreenFall Color: YellowSun Tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil
Acer palmatum 'Beni shidare' - mapleridgenursery
Acer palmatum 'Beni shidare' Red Lace Leaf Japanese Maple
from $35.00
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

Acer palmatum 'Ao Shidare' - mapleridgenursery
Acer palmatum 'Ao Shidare' Green Lace Leaf Japanese Maple
from $35.00
The name simply means green cascading which perfectly describes this great little tree. In spring the green color has a slightly blue tint that separates it from other green dissectums. At one time all green dissectums were probably called 'Ao shidare' but over time this cultivar became dominant and rightly so.  Growth  is very strong and pendulous. Ao shidare will tolerate full sun better than most green dissectum cultivars but could still benefit from some shade in hotter climates. Fall color is wonderful if not predictable, sometimes mostly yellow, other times mostly orange but usually a showy mix of both.10 Year Size:  Height:  3-6 Feet    Width:  4-8 Feet

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 'Anticipation' Red Lace Leaf Japanese Maple
from $35.00
Acer palmatum ‘Anticipation’ is a Maple Ridge Nursery introduction that we have had some fun with over the past few years. It is a beautiful red lace leaf that seems to have an irregular growth habit. It’s most unique feature however, is how late this tree emerges in the spring. This is where the name ‘Anticipation comes from. ‘Anticipation’ routinely waits until the middle to end of April here in Georgia to leaf out, easily the last cultivar at our nursery to do so. There were many years that we thought the tree was dead because it had been so long. This may not seem like a benefit at first, but this trait protects ‘Anticipation’ from any late freezes or frosts. Regardless of the tree’s quirks, ‘Anticipation’ is a beautiful Japanese maple that has excellent red color in the spring that holds quite well throughout the summer even in the heat. Fall color is then a nice bright red. The growth habit is still something we are evaluating, but thus far to have a rather unique shape while becoming the same size as most other Japanese maples in this category. 10 Year Size: Height: 4-6 feet Width: 4-6 feet
