A very popular and reliable Weeping Japanese Maple and one of the hardiest varieties.
The new spring growth is rich purple-red. This colouration is held well into summer when the leaves are greenish-purple.
Autumn tones are crimson.
Inaba Shidare needs a sunny aspect to ensure its deep purple colour, yet needs protection from the hot drying wind.
2.5m tall and wide in 10 years. A reasonably fast growing cultivar.
It's worth having these delivered unless you have a high roofed van.
