A. japonicum Green Cascade
Green Cascade is a wonderful pendulous form of Acer japonicum. Leaves are rich green and feathery. This is a great dissectum with brilliant fall colors that range through yellow-orange tones with traces of crimson. Low growing and vigorous this maple is a very nice addition to any collection. Slow mounding growth to 4 feet tall, 6-8 feet wide. Tends to grow laterally. Sun/ part shade
Aka shigisatsu sawa is a very nice reticulated cultivar which emerges with a beautiful unique spring color. In full sun, leaves develop a heavy tint of pink-red with contrasting dark green veins. Fall is firery orange and red. Growth to 8 feet. Sun/part shade.
Acer circinatum Pacific Fire
Pacific Fire is my favorite cultivar of Acer circinatum. Pacific Fire has flaming red bark in the winter that dazzles in the landscape with color. The orange - red bark has a waxy sheen to it that really makes the bark shine. Nice bronzing of the leaves when placed in full sun. A multibranching shrub/tree like the species but slower growing. Fall color is bright yellows with some orange which really make a show against the firery bark! 10 feet in 8 years. . Holds up well in the sun and heat... tends to become even more beautiful in the full sun. Will burn in extreme heat (> 90°) Hardy to -20 degrees. USDA zone 5.
Acer circinatum Sunny Sister
Another wonderful cultivar of Acer circinatum, 'Sunny Sister' shines like it's sister 'Sunglow'. Sunny Sister displays tones of lots of apricot and peach ("more so than Sunglow") as the leaves emerge in spring, fading to a lime chartruese yellow for the rest of the season. Slow growing this maple will reach 6 feet in 10 years. Morning sun with protection from hot sun is best. Hardy to -20 degrees. USDA zone 5.
Acer circinatum Baby Buttons
cer circinatum Baby Buttons is a very nice cultivar of the vine maple. Baby Buttons is a dwarf maple with a round form. The beautiful green leaves are much smaller than the species. Baby Buttons prefers sun/partial shade in well-drained soil. 2' tall x 2' wide in 10 years. Very similar to Borts Broom - perhaps the same? Graft bulge often present. Hardy to -20 degrees. USDA zone 5.
