Photo of Acer palmatum 'Emerald Lace'


Very finely dissected emerald green leaves appear on the arching branches, creating a softly rounded crown, which turns dazzling shades of red and orange in autumn, just before the leaves drop. It makes a wonderful addition to the shrub border, but its handsome silhouette and fine foliage also makes it a worthy specimen plant
