A stunning tree, this has a feathery leaf that turns bright scarlet in autumn. Holds it's colour well. Its rounded, weeping, compact habit makes it a perfect focal point for a small garden. The leaves are particularly large for a Dissectum.
Requires a sheltered spot, away from strong winds Enjoys a sunny position with partial shade for the best show of colour. Mature specimen height 1.5 m x 2 m spread. A vigorous grower.
Should be grown in moist but well-drained soil. Leaf colour is best in partial shade but the full sun can be tolerated.
Like all Maples, this one is very easy to maintain. It doesn't require any pruning routine. Remove any dead or damaged branches. The best time to prune is the late autumn or winter when the plant is fully dormant.
In spring you may add a top dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser or organic matter around the base of the plant.
