Weeping Japanese Maple ‘Dissectum Atropurpureum’

Acer palmatum ‘Dissectum Atropurpureum’ (Weeping Japanese Maple)

Part Shade Frost Tolerant Decidous


Highly prized as a garden specimen trees for their grace and elegance, their brilliantly coloured autumn leaves, attractive bark and flesh, and new spring growth. A ‘laceleaf’ weeping Japanese Maple with dark purplish foliage and a characteristic weeping forms. This cultivar is at its best in spring when the rich burgundy purple colour of the foliage is vivid. As summer approaches, the richness of the colour lessens and a slight green tone is combined with the dark colours. In autumn it returns to the burgundy purple colours.

Suited to garden beds or in containers on patios where the autumn foliage colour may be best appreciated. Prefers a cool sheltered, partly shady position, in moist well drained soil.

  • Full sun to part shade position.
  • Shelter from wind.
  • Great for a compact feature tree.
