'Ellen' is an exceptional green dissectum Japanese Maple.  It has a nice bright green coloration in the spring and summer, very deeply divided leaves, a strongly weeping habit, and excellent hardiness.  The branches are sturdy and the foliage resists heat scorch quite well considering it's delicate appearance.
