Inaba Shidare is considered one of the best lace leaf maples for hotter climates and grows well in Zones 5-9. It has been popular in Japan since the mid 1800ís and was given an Award of Merit for reliability and stable color by the Royal Horticulture Society of Great Britain. Considered a large dwarf fast growing to 7-10 feet at ten years, with leaves about 3x3 inches deeply cut with serrated edges. It is a strong grower and best used in the general landscape or as Bonsai or a patio container plant. If you want an all season reliable lace leaf maple this is it. Shipping size 15-20 inches.
