1 left in stock
Acer palmatum 'Tamukeyama' (Japanese Maple) is a dwarf, mound-forming, deciduous shrub or small tree with strongly cascading branches forming a graceful, dome-shaped specimen over time. The delicate foliage of finely-cut leaves emerges deep crimson-red in the spring and changes to a very dark purple-red in the summer. In the fall, the leaves turn bright scarlet before shedding to the ground. They reveal on mature plants, the elegantly twisted branches, and waxy, deep red bark that stand out through the winter months. In spring, this Japanese maple produces small purple-red flowers that give way to greenish samaras, which ripen in late summer to early fall. While attractive close-up, the flowers are however not particularly showy from a distance. This charming Japanese Maple makes a wonderful specimen plant and is a great choice for the patio.
