Acer palmatum Orangeola 40cm tall is a small, mound-forming, strongly weeping tree with arching branches covered with blazing, lacy orange-red leaves in spring, turning dark green to bronze-red in summer, then deep fiery-orange in autumn. Rounded, deeply lobed leaves with lobes tapering to thread-like thinness at the base of the leaf. Fast growing but as it is very pendulous it takes a while to reach its final height. Tiny purple-red flowers in spring followed by red winged fruits. Grow in sun to partial shade. This variety makes a superb weeping feature tree. Height 5-6ft (1.5-1.8m), spread 4-6ft (1.2-1.8m).
