||Acer palmatum dissectum
A low-branching, dwarf tree with delicate feathery leaves. This weeping form makes it a beautiful focal point in small gardens and patio containers, especially amongst greener plants. One of the most popular cultivars of Acer palmatum among gardeners, acclaimed for retaining its burgundy-red color throughout the growing season, though in the heat of the South it can sometimes go a bit green. In autumn, the ferny leaves turn bright orange-red before falling to the ground in a brilliant carpet. A mature specimen has a dramatic cascading form, making it a showpiece in the garden. Leaf tips can scorch easily, so this maple needs some shade. Small weeping form, lacy red foliage.

||Bright Scarlet Red
||Excellent for containers, small space gardens and patios
||Full sun/part shade. This variety will develop best color in full sun if not too hot. Important to think about light exposure: Too much light can damage delicate leaves. Too little light, and some of the more colorful varieties will take on an attractive greenish tone, but not the brilliant fall red/purple colors. For best color, most maples need a location with part day's sun or at least high light.
||Moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Prefers consistent moisture: Mulch will help retain moisture. Don't let soil dry out, nor become waterlogged.
