Acer palmatum ‘Ryusen’
Well drained neutral/acid
‘Ryusen’ boasts a magnificent weeping habit, with strong pendulous branches bearing palmately divided leaves of bright green. Train to desired height, until it forms a sturdy trunk, or let it weep over a wall. The foliage on this slow grower turns brilliant shades of golden-orange and bright red in autumn. Tolerates more heat than most.
