Regular price $300.00 Sale

Acer palmatum dissectum 'Inaba Shidare', commonly known as the Inaba Shidare Japanese Maple, is a majestic and elegant deciduous tree, particularly striking when grown as a standard. This variety is renowned for its deeply cut, cascading leaves that emerge rich purple-red in spring, turn deep burgundy in summer, and finally transform into fiery shades of red and orange in autumn. When grown on a standard, it typically reaches a height of 1.5 to 2 metres with a similar spread, creating a stunning focal point in any garden.

Thriving in well-draining, fertile soil and partial shade to full sun, Acer palmatum dissectum 'Inaba Shidare' is well-suited to various Australian climates, especially those with cooler winters. It prefers a sheltered position, protected from strong winds and intense afternoon sun, which can scorch its delicate foliage. Consistent watering is essential, particularly during dry periods, to maintain the soil's moisture without becoming waterlogged.

Acer palmatum dissectum 'Inaba Shidare' Standards are perfect for Australian gardeners seeking an elegant and dramatic tree. Its richly coloured, lace-like foliage and graceful, weeping form make it ideal for garden beds, borders, and large containers.
