Acer palmatum ‘ryu sei. This is the most pendulous japanese maple on the market today. The most unusual thing about this is that the leaves are fully palmate, light green and very attractively star shaped. Most cascading varieties have dissected leaves. If not staked, ‘ryu sei’ becomes a ground cover. When grown in a container it can resemble ivy cascading down past the bottom of the pot. For the landscape ‘ryu sei’ is generally staked up to a certain height then allowed to fall to the ground making a beautiful flowing mound. The tree will grow to about 8 feet tall if staked. Japanese name means falling stars. This is a two year old grafted plant.
