The delicate, fringed leaves of these maples provide a soft, lacy texture in the landscape.
Maples with lacy leaves are among some of the most popular. Their delicate, fringed leaf lobes are very deeply dissected and lacy in appearance. Varieties like Tamukeyama that have been in cultivation for hundreds of years, will continue to be household names. However, in recent years, the variety of available Japanese maples has increased substantially! Conifer Kingdom offers an impressive selection of laceleaf Japanese maples of every color. A few of our favorites are Jeddeloh Orange, Emerald Lace, and Red Dragon. Most lace-leaf Japanese maples have a somewhat open branch structure and mounding/weeping habit. However, a few cultivars like 'Seiryu' have lacy leaves and an upright growth habit! On each product page, a full description as well as additional growth information is provided.

LANDSCAPE USES Since these maples have such a finely-textured foliage, they contrast nicely with the rigid textures of many pines and spruces. Low-growing varieties are ideal for growing near building where a taller tree with large leaves would be out of place. Laceleaf maples add a grace and elegance that few other plants can offer.
Whatever application you have in mind, if you are looking for a maple that has a soft texture and compact habit, a laceleaf maple is an excellent option to consider.
