The Japanese Maple – Tamukeyama (Botanical Name: Acer Palmatum Dissectum Tamukeyama), stands as an extraordinary deciduous tree with a distinctive weeping form. Flourishing in a range of light conditions from full sun to part shade, this artistic accent plant demands attention in any garden.

For optimal growth, this Japanese Maple prefers a weekly watering routine and thrives in acidic, well-draining soil. Suited for Zones 5 to 8, the Tamukeyama Laceleaf unfolds into a mature size of 6 to 8 feet in height and 8 to 12 feet in width. With a moderate growth rate of 1 to 2 feet per year, it graces the garden with its lacy foliage, starting as a beautiful crimson-red and transitioning to a purple-green hue in summer.

As spring arrives, subtle corymbs of red flowers emerge above the foliage, creating a captivating display. The deeply cut ferny palmate leaves contribute to its ornamental appeal, transforming into an outstanding red in the fall. The rough gray bark and red branches of the Tamukeyama add an extra layer of interest to the landscape, making it an enchanting choice for those seeking both visual appeal and unique form in their garden. It is recommended to plant this beauty in a sheltered location to ensure its best performance.

Each plant comes in a #15 (15 gallon) growers pot. The plant shown is an example of what you will receive, all plants are individuals and we strive to pick out the best for you.
