The Dragon Tears™ Japanese Maple is a new tree with a unique growth habit and beautiful foliage. It has an upright form, but with horizontal branches that weep gracefully, making an elegant taller specimen of a type not usually found among Japanese maples. The leaves are bright red in spring, turning darker in summer, and orange-purple in fall. It makes a beautiful lawn specimen, or a feature in a bed around your home or out in the garden. Equally at home in a woodland setting or an urban Japanese courtyard, this tree also makes a lovely container specimen that will grace your terrace or patio.

  • Unique upright growth with weeping branches
  • Deeply-lobed leaves are red in spring
  • Summer foliage is purple-red, turning orange-purple in fall
  • Beautiful specimen tree reaching 10 feet or more in height
  • Grows well across the country, including hotter areas

The Dragon Tears™ Japanese Maple will grow best with morning sun and afternoon shade, especially in warmer zones. It should be planted in moist, well-drained soil enriched with organic material, and mulched with compost or rotted manure in spring, to keep the roots damp and cool. It stands up well to hotter summer weather, but water it regularly to keep the leaves from scorching or drying in summer. It normally has no pests or diseases, and it can easily be pruned as needed to control its form and ultimate height.
