'Crimson Queen' is arguably the most popular red dissectum Japanese Maple available. It is well known for it's balanced growth, good color retention, delicate texture, and overall hardiness. Like most lace leaf maples, it has a slightly pendulous growth habit that forms a mounding shrub or small tree depending on training.
