Acer palmatum 'Elmwood Spreader'
'Elmwood Spreader' is a Japanese maple cultivar introduced by Will Devine that has a low, weeping growth habit. In the spring, it produces bronze-red, finely divided leaves, which create a striking contrast against the green bark of the new growth. The leaves turn green during the summer, and the fall foliage can range from yellow to orange to red. Over 10 years, 'Elmwood Spreader' can grow up to 4 feet in height and 7 feet in width.
