Acer palmatum 'Ryusen' is a stunning cultivar of the Japanese maple tree, highly valued for its unique and graceful weeping habit. It is a deciduous tree that grows up to 10-12 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, with a dense and cascading canopy that forms a beautiful dome shape. Its branches are covered in delicate and deeply cut leaves, which emerge in spring as a vibrant green color and turn into golden-yellow in the fall. One of the most striking features of 'Ryusen' is its cascading habit, which makes it a perfect choice for small gardens or landscapes where space is limited. The tree's slender and flexible branches can be trained to grow over walls, fences, or trellises, creating a stunning vertical effect. In Japan, 'Ryusen' is often used as a bonsai tree, where its graceful weeping habit is highly appreciated. ' Ryusen' is a hardy tree that thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-drained soils. It is relatively low-maintenance, requiring only regular watering during dry periods and occasional pruning to maintain its shape and prevent overcrowding.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
