Acer palmatum dissectum 'Tamukeyama'

Tamukeyama Red Threadleaf Maple

Plant Hardiness: Zone 5

Bloom Time: April

Foliage: The new growth is a crimson red but matures into a dark purple-red. The fall color is bright scarlet. The color holds very well through the summer.

Fruit: The dry samaras have a reddish tinge before turning brown in the fall. May persist into winter but are not showy.

Native Habitat: Japan

Other Features:

Description: A variety that has been known for over 250 years in Japan, ‘Tamukeyama’ is relatively new in the United States. It is a vigorous red threadleaf form, the leaves not being cut as deeply as the finer ‘Crimson Queen’ or ‘Ever Red’ but still giving a very similar effect. The new foliage is a deep crimson-red when young, turning a dark purple-red when older. As with the other varieties of red dissectums that we grow, the color holds very well through the summer, turning a bright scarlet in the fall. This is another good one, just a bit different from the others - faster growing than our other red threadleafs.
