Comments: This small specimen tree makes a weeping, globe-shaped habit of growth. The deeply cut, fine textured foliage is particularly handsome in late autumn. Noted for its red autumn color. Makes a beautiful accent lawn tree. Allow the branches to grow near the ground produce a tree similar to the one featured at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. One of the truly outstanding selections of the Japanese maples.
