Looking for a unique addition to your garden or landscape? Look no further than Acer japonicum 'Green Cascade', also known as Green Cascade Downy Japanese Maple or Green Cascade Full Moon Maple. This stunning tree is known for its weeping habit, similar to that of the A. palmatum dissectums. The pendulous branches create a graceful mound, with leaves that are cut to the center and finely divided, giving a lacy appearance.
When young, the main stem should be staked to the desired height to achieve an upright plant that will cascade down from there. In the fall, its brilliant yellow, orange, and crimson tones will add a burst of color to your outdoor space.
Acer japonicum 'Green Cascade' is the discovery of the late Art Wright of Canby, Oregon, and is sure to be a standout in any garden or landscape. Please note that not all seedlings will be identical to the mother, so you'll have a unique plant all your own. Add this stunning weeping Japanese maple to your collection today. However, please note that all seedlings may not resemble the mother plant.
