\Acer palmatum dissectum 'Viridis'

Weeping Green Viridis Laceleaf Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

'Viridis' is a classic dwarf green Japanese maple selection with a cascading form. The 'Viridis' Japanese maple can reach 5-6 ft tall by 5-6 ft wide in 10 years. This 'Viridis' laceleaf Japanese maple leafs out as a bright chartreuse green that holds until the leaves mature to a rich green by mid-summer. In autumn, the 'Viridis' Japanese maple tree turns to a bright golden yellow to orange.

This classic 'Viridis' Japanese maple tree is excellent to provide contrast against red Japanese maples. You can use 'Viridis' as a background plant or as a focal point planting. Because of the dwarf cascading habit of 'Viridis', this Japanese maple makes an excellent tree for small space in the landscape or even for container planting. This can allow you to expand your garden with the beauty of a weeping green laceleaf Japanese maple.

After years of observation, we believe ‘Waterfall’ and ‘Viridis’ to now be the exact same cultivar in the nursery trade today. The original ‘Waterfall’ was likely a ‘Viridis’ that happened to be at waterfall at a state park in New Jersey. We still sell both cultivars as both are popular names people know this selection by.


Limited Quantities Available !! As we have over a thousand cultivars of Japanese maples, we often do not have many of each cultivar. We recommend that you buy the Japanese maples you want immediately as we often sell out of certain selections.

Beautiful mint green

The tree arrived in excellent condition, is sturdy and healthy. I love all my purchases from MrMaple; I believe that their variety of Japanese Maples, their customer service (advice and videos) and their prices cannot be matched anywhere else.

Healthy little tree

The Viridis maple I ordered arrived in great shape and is thriving in its pot. All the trees I've received from Mr. Maple have been large for the price, and have all had great looking grafts and root systems!
