Acer Seiryu- Green Dissected - Japanese Maple

Acer palmatum 'Seiryu' is one of my all time favourite Japanese Maples. This beautiful cultivar is surprisingly fast growing for a Maple and will grow at twice the rate of other cultivars. It is also very resistant to strong winds which can damage the leaves of other maples. Spring foliage is bright green, and very dissected, but the autumn colours are just breathtaking; flashes of bright orange, yellow, and red erupt all over the Maple and a mature specimen is a sight to behold. It is ideal for the small garden or patio, growing no larger than 10ft, and comes into it's own in the Japanese landscaped garden amongst bonsai, waterfall, sand circles, Japanese Ferns, and sculpture. Please note the photo shows one of our larger specimens which are now sold out. We now have some 18litre 5-6ft ones.
