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.
