Acer Palmatum- ‘Omure yama’ is an extremely unique Japanese maple that is known for its beautiful cascading or weeping form. The cascading form is different but equally as beautiful as Japanese maples from the Dissectum Group. The leaves on this willowy tree are truly spectacular. The margins on the leaves are deeply toothed with fine serrations between. Omure yama’s new spring leaves have a bright orange cast to the leaf edges, but the leaves soon become a brilliant green. Omure yama’s fall colors are quite spectacular with its gold and crimson red combinations. Omure yama is a very vigorous, upright growing tree when they are young. Later they show a true pendulous character. The trees long willowy shoots start upward then bend outward. As Omure yama Japanese maple trees mature they become quite rounded with long cascading side branches. In 20 years the tree can reach heights of 25-30 feet tall and grow 20-25 feet wide. Omure yama was first introduced in Japan in 1938. This tremendous cultivar is an outstanding Japanese maple for large gardens.
