Description / Acer palmatum 'Ryusen'

Plant Patent #18,501.

At last, a true weeping Japanese Maple! 'Ryusen' boasts a magnificent weeping habit with strong, pendulous branches bearing palmately divided leaves of bright green. It's a whole new look for the family!

Train 'Ryusen' to desired height until it forms a sturdy trunk, or let it weep over a wall, espalier it, or let it decorate your favorite arbor or arch. The cascading branches are wonderfully versatile, so you can find just the right spot in any landscape for this exciting introduction!

The foliage on this slow grower turns brilliant shades of golden-orange and bright red in autumn. More heat- and sun-tolerant than many A. palmatum cultivars, 'Ryusen' leafs out late in spring, thus avoiding late frosts. Expect it to reach 20 feet long and 6 to 8 feet wide over many years. Zones 5-8.
