'Inaba shidare' is a relatively upright dissectum with branches that tend to arch rather than weep. One of the laceleaf Japanese maples that handles full sun very well. Too much shade will affect the leaf colour.
A medium sized laceleaf, 'Inaba shidare' will grow to about 5' tall and 6' wide in ten years. Mature size may be 10' tall and up to 15' wide, sometimes in about fifteen years.
