Award-winning Acer palmatum 'Emerald Lace' is a fast-growing, deciduous small tree with a deep emerald green, lacy foliage of great beauty. The small, deeply cut, dissected leaves emerge lime-green in spring, mature to deep emerald green as the season progresses, before turning spectacular bright burgundy-red in the fall. Vigorous, this semi-upright Japanese maple forms a spreading bush adorned with long, pendulous branches. Standing out in the landscape, it makes a terrific specimen plant, is perfect for the shrub border and its compact habit makes it suitable for containers.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
