    Add elegance and grace to your garden with the colorful foliage of Crimson Queen Japanese Maple, a deciduous, cascading, laceleaf maple tree with a compact size. This beauty queen's feathery foliage is royal red in spring then quickly matures to a dark maroon color until autumn, when the leaves transform into a bright crimson red before falling to the ground for winter dormancy.

    Also known as a Laceleaf Maple, Acer palmatum dissectum 'Crimson Queen' is a popular cultivar of the Dissectum group of Japanese Maples grown for its exquisite, deeply divided and dissected, weeping purplish-red foliage and low-growing, mounding shape that is striking in any garden, courtyard, or container. Create a focal point with a single specimen or with a group planting. The spreading, sculptural form of 'Crimson Queen' is quite spectacular near water features or boulders, and is extremely effective in a woodland style or Asian garden design. For a dramatic landscape, contrast the red leaf color and delicate lacy texture against plants with different leaf shapes in colors of blue, gold, or green.

    Acer palmatum dissectum 'Crimson Queen' has small reddish flowers in spring that are easily overlooked but transform into a red, 2-winged papery seed known as a samara, or more commonly referred to as a helicopter seed for its spinning motion as it falls from the tree.

    Crimson Queen Japanese Maple has reigned supreme in the garden since the 1960's for its stable burgundy color, dense growth, texture, and cascading form. This laceleaf maple may look delicate but it is low maintenance. With its majestic purplish-red foliage and easy care, 'Crimson Queen' will be a regal addition to any landscape.


    Q: Why are the leaves on my Japanese Maple yellow?
    A: Alkaline soils may inhibit nutrients and result in chlorosis (yellow leaves with green veins). Fertilizing with G&B Organics Rhododendron, Azalea & Camellia Fertilizer will help lower the soil pH. Follow directions on the package.

    Q: How long will a Crimson Queen Japanese Maple Tree live?
    A: The Crimson Queen Japanese Maple Tree can live more than 80 years under ideal conditions.

    Delivering premium quality trees and plants is the heart of everything we do at Plants Express. Whether you need a single patio plant or trees and shrubs for a new landscape, everything comes direct from our nursery to you. Our QA team inspects every one of your plants prior to delivery, and we take great pride in our rigorous quality standards. We use our specially outfitted sprinter vans for most deliveries, and our fleet of trucks is available for larger landscape projects and trees. Your plants never spend the night “on the road” as with most online nurseries, and come fresh from our Northern or Southern California nurseries.

    We never box up your plants and hand them off to FedEx or UPS. Live goods need special handling, and no one does this better than Plants Express.

    Sustainability Commitment
    We know you hate boxes and other packaging materials, and so do we! No cardboard or plastic wrapping is used in our deliveries. As for the plastic pots used for many of our plants, we will pick these up free upon your next delivery. All the pots will be reused in our growing operations, rather than being sent to a landfill.
