Acer palmatum var. dissectum Sieryu (ultimate height and spread to around 2.5m/8.2ft) is a lovely small-medium sized deciduous shrub/tree with finely cut, bright green slender leaves. It provides excellent autumn colour like most Acers, displaying beautiful red and orange-yellow hues. It enjoys a sunny to partially shady position - dappled shade is often ideal, and will ensure the best leaf colour. It should be planted in a container or the ground, in a hole large enough to avoid root ball disturbance, and in a moist but well drained soil.
