Acer palmatum 'Seiryu' Cutleaf Japanese Maple
This wonderful tree possesses fine ferny foliage in a lovely green and turns a brilliant scarlet in fall. It grows in an upright form, making this a great choice for a solitary accent in the garden.
Seiryu Japanese Maple is primarily valued in the landscape for its ornamental globe-shaped form. It features subtle corymbs of red flowers rising above the foliage in mid spring before the leaves. It has attractive light green deciduous foliage which emerges red in spring. The deeply cut ferny palmate leaves are highly ornamental and turn outstanding shades of gold, orange and red in the fall. The rough gray bark and red branches add an interesting dimension to the landscape.
