'Tamuke yama' is one of the oldest known Japanese maples in production. For at least 300 years (Yes, 300!) this fabulous weeping dissectum has been propagated. That is reason enough to have one in your collection.
Acer palmatum dissectum 'Tamuke yama' leafs out in the spring with shades of burgundy, almost brown coloured leaves. Then, the leaves become more burgundy-red, dark red for summer. Fall leaf colour is a bright scarlet red. If located in more shade, more green tones will come out in the leaves.
This cascading, umbrella-shaped laceleaf will grow to about 8' tall and 10-12' wide over time. 'Tamuke yama' is a great choice for full sun and also for locations where late frosts can be expected, as it is late to leaf out. Japanese maples leaves can be sensitive to frost damage.
