Japanese Maple

Acer palmatum var. dissectum ‘Crimson Queen’




‘Crimson Queen’ will quickly become the show piece of your landscape! The weeping form of this low-branching tree is stunning in all seasons. The finely serrated leaves emerge a rich red color in the spring. Foliage holds color, as a deep crimson burgundy, all summer before turning bright red in the late fall. Once leaves fall, you are left with incredible architecture as winter interest. Works wonderfully as as a container specimen or as a focal point in your shade garden. ‘Crimson Queen’ can handle more sun that other Japanese maples, but we suggest full shade or dappled sun locations.
