Acer palmatum dissectum 'Viridis'

Green Threadleaf Weeping Japanese Maple

  • Aggressive grower
  • Spreading, flowing form
  • Foliage gives plant a frilly texture
  • Green turns into bright, brassy yellow-orange shades in fall
There are plenty of red dissected leaved Maples out there but 'Viridis' with its bright, light to medium green foliage may be the showiest of all the dissected leaved Maples. Leaves unfold in April with a delicate, thread-like look that belies the aggressive growth this plant maintains. This foliage gives the spreading, flowing form of this plant a frilly texture, lending to its appeal as a great specimen. Fall foliage color is outstanding as the green turns into bright, brassy yellow-orange shades that are traffic stopping.
