Sizing guide

A graceful weeping Japanese maple that is the widest spreading and one of the fastest growing of the weeping 'laceleaf' types. An excellent cultivar (equal to the better known purple-leafed weeping maples) suitable as a specimen for protected parks and gardens where there is space for it to reach its full potential.

Acer palmatum 'Dissectum Viridis', commonly known as the Green Laceleaf Japanese Maple, is a graceful deciduous tree admired for its finely dissected, bright green foliage that turns a vibrant mix of yellow, orange, and red in the fall. The tree has a cascading, weeping habit, typically growing to 2-3mt tall and wide, creating a stunning, elegant appearance in any landscape.

To grow Acer palmatum 'Dissectum Viridis', select a planting location with partial shade to protect the delicate leaves from intense afternoon sun, which can cause leaf scorch. The tree prefers well-drained, slightly acidic soil that is rich in organic matter.

Consistent soil moisture is essential, especially during dry spells, but be cautious to avoid waterlogged conditions. Applying a layer of mulch around the base helps retain soil moisture and regulate temperature. Minimal pruning is required, focusing on removing dead or damaged branches, ideally done in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. Shielding the tree from strong winds is important to prevent damage to its delicate branches. Fertilize in early spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to promote healthy growth.

This Japanese Maple is perfect for adding a touch of elegance and vibrant seasonal color to gardens and landscapes.
