This Acer has a weeping growth habit, creating a mushroom like display. Finely cut, fabulous deep purple-red leaves emerge from red buds turning bronze in the summer, followed by brilliant crimson-scarlet in autumn. Ideal as a feature/specimen tree and may be grown in containers. Grows well in either full sun or part shade in moist, organically rich soil that is free-draining. Shelter from excessive dry winds.
