Noted for its persistent leaf color throughout the entire growing season, award-winning Acer palmatum Crimson Queen is a medium-sized deciduous shrub of outstanding interest. Unlike most Lace leaf Japanese Maples with rich red color in spring or early summer, turning green or bronze afterwards, Crimson Queen keeps its stunning rich red coloration from spring to summer. The eye-catching foliage is very finely dissected into medium to large, 7-9 lobed leaves. It turns very bright scarlet in the fall before shedding to the ground. More Sun tolerant than most, this cultivar can be exposed to full Sun with practically no sunburn. Strong-growing, this Japanese Maple features a lovely cascading habit and has become a favorite for many gardeners.
