Foliage of Japanese Crimson Queen Maple Trees
“Crimson Queen” Japanese maple trees (Acer palmatum dissectum 'Crimson Queen') can be grown in zones 5-8, reaching a height of 8’-10’ and spread of 10’-12’. This dwarf will grace any lawn with its pleasing weeping habit and dissected leaf type.The foliage is dark red spring and early summer, in the Mid summer the leaves get bright green then mature to a crimson more golden color for fall foliage. Texture of the foliage is silky whisper light, almost of a lace look. The Leaves Fall off in late fall and in winter its limbs are bare. I do have to prune it during the growing months.
