Regular price $300.00 Sale

Acer palmatum dissectum 'Shojo Shidare', commonly known as the Shojo Shidare Japanese Maple, is a dramatic and elegant deciduous tree, particularly striking when grown as a standard. This variety is renowned for its deeply lobed, cascading leaves that emerge bright crimson in spring, turning to a rich burgundy through summer, and transforming to brilliant 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 'Shojo 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 keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

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