Acer palmatum Seryru is a medium-sized, vase-shaped deciduous shrub or small tree of upright and columnar growth. Its palmate, feathery, lacy foliage is finely dissected, lime green in spring, green with red tinge in summer, and golden, orange, and red in autumn. This plant is very unique because it’s the only dissected form of Japanese maple with an upright habit (instead of domed or weeping). Its vase-based shape becomes rounder over the years. Seiryu maple prefers moist, well-drained soil of any kind, preferably slightly acidic. Best leaf colour is achieved in partial shade, but it tolerates full sun very well. Lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure can cause leaf scorch. Acer palmatum Seryru is great for small, urban or cottage gardens, rock gardens, and for growing in containers. Colourful decorative leaves are spectacular in autumn, which makes this tree a great specimen plant.

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).
