Acer palmatum Omure yama


'Omure yama' is another unusual, dramatic maple that has a place in any garden.  The green leaves of this vigorous maple sometimes have an orange cast to them in spring.  Fall colors are spectacular crimson and gold.  The unique growing habit of 'Omure yama' resembles a weeping willow.  Its long branches shoot upward, then bend out and down.  More and more shoots continue upward giving this maple a final height of 16 feet.
