Acer palmatum 'Chitoseyama shidare' Weeping Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum dissectum 'Chitoseyama shidare'
Bright Red Weeping Japanese Maple
About 10 years ago, some friends brought 'Chitoseyama shidare' back from Japan. They thought this might be an upright red laceleaf Japanese maple. It is not. "Chitoseyama" is a region in Japan and "shidare" means weeping. After evaluating this tree for a number of years, we have realized this is an amazing tree. 'Chitoseyama shidare' leafs out as a bright cherry red, maturing to a lighter shade of red than the typical deep maroon color of other red laceleaf maples. The cherry red new growth will grab your attention during the summer. Fall color is a bright crimson red. In 10 years 'Chitoseyama shidare' may reach 4 ft in height by 6 ft in width.
