The 'Seiryu' Japanese Maple, Acer p. 'Seiryu', is the only upright dissected-leaf Japanese maple!
The others are all 'weepers'. Even the leaves are much smaller and do not have the appearance of other dissected-leaf maples.
The foliage appears green in spring with a slight red or pink tinge to the margins of each leaf. Then in the summer these margins quickly fade away leaving a striking medium green leaf.
This vigorous growing 'Seiryu' Japanese Maple makes an airy, spreading small tree that reaches around 15 feet in height. It is a rather vase-shaped tree when young; growing wider and much rounder with age.
In the fall, the first cold air may give the tree an orange or red appearance but the leaves will always end up burgundy before dropping!
This 'Seiryu' will thrive best if planted in a shady, less windy environment, with well drained soil. It is a useful small tree for garden accents, Bonsai, or in containers.
