Just planted 2007

Acer palmatum

'Shojo Shidare'

Zone 6

(Europe 7)

This plant has the cascading form of all dissectums and

should be staked up for a few years to get the necessary height

to appreciate the beauty of that cascading form

Basic leaf colour is deep maroon ... brighter in the new foliage

Not widely known and new to me this year (2007)

There may be further photographs of this plant

REMEMBER that all Japanese Maples prefer a slightly acid well drained soil with a constant moisture content.
