Acer 'Seiryu' Japanese Maple

Item #29463


A unique laceleaf Japanese maple with an upright habit

Unlike other laceleaf Japanese maples, Acer 'Seiryu' boasts an upright habit, making it a unique choice for any garden. This deciduous shrub or multistemmed small tree promises year-round appeal, showcasing exquisite architecture, finely dissected lacy leaves, and a captivating play of colors.

During early spring, 'Seiryu' graces your garden with attractive reddish-purple flowers that give way to intricate, red-tipped pale green leaves. As the season progresses, the leaves transform into a vibrant bright green, and by early fall, they burst into a breathtaking display of orange and red hues. The winged samaras that replace the flowers not only add visual interest but also support songbirds.

As an Acer palmatum var. dissectum, commonly called Japanese maple, 'Seiryu' features an upright, outwardly spreading, vase-shaped habit with a moderate growth rate. The size varies depending on conditions, but it typically reaches 10 to 15 feet in height and 8 to 12 feet in width. This adaptable and easy-to-grow Japanese maple is an ideal specimen plant, contributing delicate texture and stunning color to your landscape. Perfect for small urban gardens or large containers, 'Acer Seiryu' thrives in sunny to dappled shade locations with organically rich, moist, well-draining soil.

This Japanese maple is highly adaptable and tolerates a variety of soils, including sand and heavy clay. With disease resistance and tolerance to rabbits and black walnuts, 'Seiryu' is a favored understory plant.
