Extremely finely-cut foliage sets this purple-red laceleaf Japanese maple apart from others. Bright burgundy spring foliage darkens to maroon for summer and then goes vivid red in fall. Although the lacy leaves have a very delicate look, the tree is surprisingly hardy; leaves can burn in full sun or drought, though. ‘Red Filigree’ grows more slowly than other red laceleafs, but eventually attains a similar size and habit. Dissectum.
