The laceleaf Japanese maples are considered by many gardeners to be the most beautiful forms of this lovely tree. The Seiryu Japanese Maple is a unique form of the laceleaf, or dissectum type, because it grows not into a cascading mound as the others do, but into an upright vase-shaped tree up to 15 feet tall. It makes the perfect small tree for a smaller garden; perhaps an Asian-themed one, a wooded garden, or any garden at all where beauty and ease of growing are appreciated.

The leaves in spring are pale green, with reddish edges. In summer they turn into a rich, cool green and then in fall they explode into yellows, oranges, and reds, before finally turning burgundy. (Source: The Tree Center)
