Special Attributes

Recognized by professionals and gardeners worldwide as one of the most beautiful and durable weeping lace-leaf Japanese Maples in existence, Tamukeyama is one of the oldest Japanese maple varieties in existence, cultivated in Japan since 1710. It has stood the test of time for very good reason. It is a very vigorous cultivar with gracefully cascading branches covered in finely dissected deep burgundy-red leaves that resist sun scorch and hold their color throughout the season better than most other varieties. The foliage turns a brilliant scarlet color in fall. Grows 6 to 8 feet tall and 8-10 feet wide at maturity.




Landscape & Garden Uses

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. Crimson Queen is an ideal selection for landscape beds or in containers. 

Spacing:  14' or for space between plants
