Acer palmatum diissectum ‘Viridis’

Green Lace Leaf Japanese Maple

The Japanese Lace Leaf Maples are amongst the most elegant of deciduous shrubs it is possible to grow in the temperate garden. Their finely dissected leaves are a study in light and shadow and always lend a touch of class to a mixed planting. Soil needs to be evenly moist and preferably chalk-free to prevent leaf tips from scorching.

They can also be easily grown in containers as long as watering needs are catered for. Acer palmatum var dissectum ‘Viridis’ has leaves that emerge lime-green, retaining that fresh colour all year until changing to red, orange and gold in autumn.

Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

Acer palmatum dissectum ‘Viridis’, the Green Lace Leaf Japanese Maple, thrives in well-drained soil and partial shade to protect its delicate foliage from scorching. Regular watering, especially during dry spells, is crucial for its health.

‘Viridis’ typically reaches a height and spread of 1.5-2.5 metres over many years, forming a graceful, cascading mound. Pruning should be minimal, mainly to remove dead or damaged branches and maintain its elegant shape. With its compact size, this cultivar is ideal for smaller gardens, courtyards, or as a focal point in a Japanese-inspired landscape, where its stunning foliage can truly shine.

Expert Tip

Acers hate drying out at the roots, so mulch heavily with bark chippings to conserve soil moisture.
