Quick Overview:

‘Tamukeyama’ is one of the older Japanese maple cultivars with records dating back to the year 1710. Tamukeyama’s new foliage is a deep crimson-red when unfolding but soon turns to a dark-purple red. It is an excellent shade of dark red that holds until late summer. Its fall color is a bright scarlet. Growers throughout the United States say that this cultivar does well in both heat and humidity. This hardy plant has a strong cascading form. This cultivar is considered by many to be the best, and the connoisseurs choice in red dissectums.  (Courtesy of the Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)


Easily grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best performance is in sun-dappled part shade. Foliage may scorch in full sun. Avoid hot, dry sites. Plant in a location protected from strong winds.  (Courtesy of the Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
