'Oregon Fern' is a weeping selection of full moon maple that can reach 6 feet in height and width within 10 years. The green lace leaves of this Acer japonicum have a frilly appearance, lending an extremely ornamental appeal to any landscape. In the fall, 'Oregon Fern' transforms into a stunning display of bright yellows, oranges, and reds, often starting at the leaf edges and working the mirage of colors inward.

This laceleaf selection was chosen and introduced by J.D. Vertrees, the renowned author of the first three editions of Japanese Maples. 'Oregon Fern' is sure to add a touch of elegance and vibrant color to your garden, making it a prized addition to your collection.
