Shady landscape sites need not be boring or bare. With award-winning Crimson Queen in their midst, your sun-dappled garden areas will come alive with rich red color… and remain that way through the entire growing season. This graceful tree boasts a delicate cascading habit and finely incised leaves that are very soft to the touch. They look exquisite near entryways, as specimen plantings or in large containers that can be moved around the property. As long as they are kept in mostly shaded areas, they will keep their bright red color. Just before the fall leaf drop, Crimson Queen will turn very bright scarlet, giving her last hurrah before the end of the year. Acer palmatum 'Crimson Queen'
