Often referred to as the umbrella variety of Acers, the Dissectum Group of Japanese Maples have several characteristics in common. Dissectum Acers have delicate, lace-like leaves, a cascading, dome-shaped growing habit and a slow growth rate. The various Dissectum varieties however differ in terms of foliage colour and size.

Because of their general weeping habit and spectacular foliage colour, Acer Palmatum Dissectum group are stunning as specimen trees and add a refined dimension to any garden. The smaller varieties grow particularly well in pots. Hardier than they look, they do however like a sheltered spot and do not like to dry out, but will grow in either sun or shade.
