Acer palmatum dissectum 'Contorta'
Acer palmatum dissectum 'Contorta' is a unique cultivar of Japanese maple. It's a slow-growing deciduous tree that reaches a height of 8 to 12 feet with a similar spread. What makes 'Contorta' unique is its contorted and twisted branches, which gives it a sculptural appearance. The leaves are deeply-dissected, with narrow, pointed lobes that give them a delicate, lacy appearance. They emerge in spring with a bright green color that matures to a deeper green in summer. In the fall, they turn a range of colors from yellow to orange, often with shades of red and pink. 'Contorta' prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter and slightly acidic. It does best in partial shade, but can tolerate full sun as long as it is not too hot and dry. 'Contorta' is a highly distinctive tree that makes a great focal point in any garden or landscape.
