The Acer palmatum 'Oridono-Nishiki' or Oridono Nishiki Japanese Maple is perfect for those looking for an eye-catching addition to their landscape. It is a hardier option compared to green-leaved varieties and is known for its sensational fall color - a beautiful bronze-red shade that really stands out. This cultivar is unique when compared to others such as 'Inaba shidare,' 'Ever Red,' or 'Crimson Queen.' It has an attractive winter silhouette and smooth gray bark, providing interest even during the "off season". Vertrees describes the mother cultivar as having interesting red spring foliage. The Oridono Nishiki Japanese Maple has seven very long thin lobes which are deeply divided on each leaf. At full maturity, it can reach up to 10 ft high and 10 ft or more in width. With fresh green seed, it is worth noting that red-leaved varieties produce a high proportion of red-leaved offspring and are slightly hardier than green-leaved types. While growing it, Rick Sheffield noticed a great deal of variation in the seedlings that come from this seed - even more variation than any other cultivar he has grown. While our seeds were collected from parent trees in a nursery situation, resulting seedlings may or may not resemble the parent cultivar. Add this stunning tree to your landscape to bring some sparkling color and interest all year round.
