Quick Overview:

‘Ryusen’ is a gorgeous and rare cascading form of the traditional upright Japanese maple. Medium-sized green palmate leaves turn yellow and then crimson in the fall. The name translates roughly to “Falling waters” or “Flowing river”.

Description

Easily grown in moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Grows well in sandy loams. May be grown in full sun in the northern parts of its growing range, but prefers some part afternoon shade in the southern parts of its range. New foliage may scorch in full sun locations in hot summer areas, particularly if soils are not kept consistently moist. Mulch helps retain soil moisture and keep roots cool. Avoid hot and dry sites. Site in locations protected from strong winds. Pruning is best kept to a minimum, but if needed should be done in late fall to mid-winter. Spring or summer pruning often results in significant bleeding.  (Courtesy of the Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
