Ryusen Japanese Maple
Weeping Maple with Outstanding Form and Color
The Ryusen Japanese Maple is a weeping Maple tree with outstanding form and color. Plant several beside a fence or retaining wall, or use as a focal point at the edge of a patio or entryway.
Your Ryusen Japanese Maple is a tree that will prompt people who pass by to stop and take a second look, especially in autumn. Just imagine the effect of a 10 foot tall column of maple leaves that shoots up, then cascades down in a vibrant splash of reds and oranges! It’s a breathtaking sight to be sure.
The spring and summer show is equally as impressive as your Ryusen Japanese Maple leafs out in its dressy, small-lobed leaves. The foliage begins as a fanciful lime-green, slowly developing into much deeper tones and demonstrating a somewhat two-toned effect at times. You can leave it alone to achieve a natural look or creeping groundcover effect, or train it to a trellis or arbor. It will also flow gracefully over a retaining wall or fence. Think of the fun you’ll have considering all the places you can plant it, and the unique ways you can train it!
The Ryusen Japanese Maple is perfect for small spaces. It has a vigorous growth rate and isn’t bothered by pests or diseases. Your Ryusen will endure spring freezes, and is also tolerant of heat and sun. It is generally low maintenance, allowing for as much time as you prefer to put into it. Under ideal conditions it will live over 80 years, so it’s an excellent choice for a tree with longevity.
