Velvet Viking™ Japanese Maple

Acer palmatum var. dissectum 'Monfrick' PP #31,864

SKU
03438
Low, spreading branches on a beautifully mounded, weeping dwarf form. Rich, red, deeply dissected foliage holds its color throughout the growing season, developing more vibrant red tones in the fall. A lacy, delicate appearance yet exceptionally tough and cold tolerant. Thrives in full sun of cooler regions. An excellent container specimen. Deciduous.
