The Acer palmatum 'Seiryu' Seiryu Laceleaf Japanese Maple is a hardy and stunning addition to any landscape. Its fall color is sensational - featuring a beautiful bronze-red hue that sets it apart from other cultivars like 'Inaba shidare,' 'Ever Red,' and 'Crimson Queen.' Not only is it visually striking in autumn, but its smooth gray bark and attractive winter silhouette provide interest all year round. This maple's unique seven long and thin lobes on each leaf are deeply divided, making it stand out even more. Although it can reach heights of up to 15 ft high and a width of over 9 ft, its fresh green seedlings will offer a great deal of variation to any garden. Keep in mind that while seedlings from cultivars may or may not resemble the mother tree, you can be sure that this maple will bring incredible beauty and visual interest to your outdoor space. This maple truly is a standout choice for any landscape scheme.
