Red Dragon Japanese Maple

Acer palmatum var. dissectum 'Red Dragon'

SKU
01039
The deep dissection of the beautiful purple leaves produces an attractive lacy appearance. As fall temperatures cool, the foliage transitions to a bright, apple red color. This graceful, small tree creates a stunning focal point or accent for lightly shaded gardens, patios, and entryways, and is ideal for containers. Deciduous.
