Weeping Maple is a vigorous tree boasting lacy leaves that emerge a tinged light orange-red color and mature to a deep, alluring green in summer—which is why it is also known as Viridis.
In the fall the foliage transforms itself yet again by adopting even darker reddish hues for a truly spectacular autumn show. Viridis adds incredible texture to a garden thanks to leaves that resemble delicate ferns and sway enticingly in a breeze.
Weeping Maple forms a low mound of cascading leaves atop elegant draping branches that create graceful arches and brings depth and elegance to this species.
This lace-leaf Maple grows more vigorously than most other Japanese Maple varieties available. It makes an outstanding accent tree particularly when lit up at night or situated next to a pond or water fountain.
Viridis grows to be about 8 feet tall when mature and has a spread of nearly 10 feet. The slow growth rate allows this plant to flourish for 60 years or more with very minimal care. It also easily fits in a tighter spot where other trees might be too large.
Relatively low maintenance, Weeping Maple should only be pruned in the summer months. Thriving in full sun to partial shade, it does best if you mulch the root base so that it has access to the rich moisture it provides.
Viridis is coveted by many gardeners, but is fairly new to the market and is not easily found in garden centers. We are thrilled to offer this deciduous beauty to our best customers who come to us seeking trees that are simply hard to find locally.
