Acer palmatum ‘Burgundy Lace’
The Burgundy Lace Japanese Maple cultivar has almost ribbon-like lobes and red coloration comparable with burgundy wine. Developed in America, the spring and early summer burgundy coloration typically fades to a warm bronze or greenish by mid summer. The tree will burn if planted in full sun. The Burgundy Lace is spreading in habit and develops a wide canopy if given room. If pruned carefully, the tree fits well in smaller landscape settings.

What am I buying?
We sell Burgundy Lace Japanese Maples as rooted cuttings. Taken from Wikipedia, “a plant cutting is a piece of a plant that is used in horticulture for vegetative (asexual) propagation. A piece of the stem or root of the source plant is placed in a suitable medium such as moist soil. If the conditions are suitable, the plant piece will begin to grow as a new plant independent of the parent, a process known as striking.” Put more simply, a rooted cutting is a small clone of the specimen from which it was taken. As a genetically identical clone, the cutting shares all the characteristic traits and attributes of the cultivated variety. Our rooted cuttings are 3-6 months old and 4-8 inches in stem length above the soil line. They are clipped from our private stock plants and grown in root pruning trays at our temperature controlled greenhouse.
