The Red Filgree Lace Japanese Maple is a wonderful specimen tree for that special place in your garden. It grows into a broad, mounded plant with cascading branches, creating a graceful profile in all seasons. The exceptional slender twigs form a lacey network in winter, but it is the very finely-divided leaves, with 7 slender lobes, that create the gorgeous filigree effect. The leaves open in spring a rich burgundy, and they turn to a darker maroon in summer, without greening. In fall they become a vibrant, bright red. All year this plant is remarkable, and it is among the very best and most select of all the dissected Japanese maples.

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.
