Acer palmatum 'Ghost Dragon' Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum 'Ghost Dragon'
AREA 51 COLLECTION™
PENDULOUS TREASURES COLLECTION™
'Ghost Dragon' is a new weeping selection from the Pendulous Treasure Collection™ at MrMaple. We have been evaluating this tree for a number of years here at MrMaple and have decided to make it available.
'Ghost Dragon' leafs out in the spring with leaves that cup downward like a hand and red tips that look like painted fingernails. The most awesome thing about 'Ghost Dragon' is it is extremely cascading. The arching habit hooks strongly. For someone wanting 'Ghost Dragon' to have a taller habit, it is recommended to stake it up to about 5-6 ft and let it cascade downward for a fountain-like weeping habit. 'Ghost Dragon' is also great for containers. In the fall 'Ghost Dragon' turns bright orange to red. In certain environmental conditions where 'Ghost Dragon' gets some sunlight and is allowed to leaf out slowly, 'Ghost Dragon' may display a reticulated variegation to the leaf in the early spring. Many won't see this, which is why this "Ghost" name so aptly fits.
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.
