Vase-shaped tree with graceful, arching branches provides brilliantly colored foliage from spring to fall. Its deeply lobed, elongated leaves emerge crimson red in the spring, and change to white, cream, pink and green hues during the summer months. In the fall, the tree looks ablaze with crimson and scarlet foliage. Growing 10-15' tall with a 15-18' spread, Shirazz is an ideal tree for planting as a focal point, in a woodland garden or near water features. It prefers well-drained soil. While the Shirazz Japanese Maple grows quickly when young, its growth slows as it matures. Shirazz, an introduction from New Zealand, requires very little pruning to maintain its shape.

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.
