Description:

A low-branching, dwarf tree with a delicate, weeping form. The foliage holds its beautiful crimson color throughout summer and can turn bright scarlet in autumn.

Flowering Season
Botanical Name: Acer palmatum var. dissectum 'Crimson Queen'
Deciduous/ Evergreen: Deciduous
Growth Habit: Weeping
Growth Rate: Moderate
Special Feature: Dramatic Foliage Color, Dwarf Plant, Easy Care, Fall Color, Tolerates Acidic Soil
Foliage Color: Red
Bloom Time: Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.
Flower Color: Purple
Garden Style: Asian/Zen
Design Ideas: Plant beside a stream or pond where its cascading branches will look superb. Use the extremely fine texture and reddish hue of its leaves to contrast areas of coarser green plants. Beautiful above a large rock or wall where the limbs can spill over. A great specimen plant for the woodsy landscape. Keep away from full sun, which can burn leaves.

Provide slightly acidic, well-drained soil; shelter from drying winds. Avoid harsh afternoon sun exposures in hot summer areas. Mulch to keep root zone cool. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply slow-release fertilizer in early spring.
