They Ryusen translates into flowing water, and the name fits! Elegant as it cascades over a wall, as an espalier or standing alone in all its glory, this is an excellent choice for narrow spaces. Emerges light green in fall with small red flowers, turning yellow-orange-red in the fall. A true beauty.
There is no other beauty like the Japanese Maple. Famous for their stunning fall colors, these trees bring a serene and peaceful ambience to any garden in every season.

||Beautiful tree for espalier or weeping over a wall. You can train to grow up and cascade over an arbor. Or you can use as a single specimen focal point in small garden or container.
||Full sun/part shade. Important to think about light exposure: Too much light and/or heat 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.
||Moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Prefers consistent moisture: Mulch will help retain moisture. Don't let soil dry out, nor become water logged.
