Emerald Lace is a beautiful green laceleaf Japanese Maple with a mounding form and graceful cascading branches. The branches are covered with finely dissected leaves which emerge chartreuse in spring with red petioles (leaf stems), maturing to rich green in summer, and then bright burgundy-red in fall. Growing to about 5 feet tall and 6-7 feet wide, Emerald Lace makes for a stunning focal point specimen plant in the landscape or potted patio tree.

That said, Japanese Maples are often used to accentuate entryways by planting one on both sides of an entrance, or spaced widely in small clusters of three.  An ideal selection for landscape beds or in containers. 

Spacing:  10'+ for space between plants
