Quick Overview:

‘Seiryu’ is the only dissected cultivar that has an upright form. Mature plants may grow to as much as 10-15′ tall. Deeply cut and dissected leaves (to 2″ long) are smaller than the leaves on most other dissectum cultivars. Leaves emerge light green with reddish tipped edges in spring, mature to medium green in summer and turn gold with orange and red hues in fall. Small reddish-purple flowers in spring are somewhat attractive on close inspection, but are not showy from a distance. Cultivar name means green dragon.

Description

Easily grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best performance is in sun-dappled part shade. Avoid hot, dry sites. Plant in locations protected from strong winds.
