ACER JAPONICUM 'GOSSAMER' GOSSAMER DWARF FULL MOON JAPANESE MAPLE
'Gossamer' was found as a chance seedling by one of our good friends, Billy Schwartz, under a large Acer japonicum at the original Red Maple Nursery in Lima, Pennsylvania. The leaf color on this laceleaf japonicum is almost a silver color in the spring, maturing to green. The heavily dissected leaves are lacier than any other Acer japonicum. Many believe this full moon selection to be a hybrid with an Acer palmatum dissectum. 'Gossamer' is an extremely dwarf and slow growing weeping full moon Japanese maple. 'Gossamer' is excellent for containers, conifer troughs, or fairy gardens.
We had the privilege of seeing the original 'Gossamer' seedling, which is much smaller and slower growing than grafts off of it. The photo is Billy Schwartz holding the original 'Gossamer' beside Tim years ago.
