ACER PALMATUM BURGUNDY LACE - JAPANESE MAPLE
A relatively small growing specimen tree, this attractive cultivar of the Japanese Maple ‘Burgundy Lace’ is grown for its purple-red foliage and interesting growth habit. Its leaves are dissected almost to the petiole and produce a delicate appearance. The foliage appears more vibrant in the spring when the new leaves emerge, but it also produces a good display of autumn colours. It tends to have an open spreading growth habit. This compact cultivar makes a wonderful accent for any landscape.
