Acer palmatum dissectum 'Lace Lady' Tree

Japanese Maple Trees

from From £299.99 (ex. VAT)
( £359.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

This Japanese Maple has feathery foliage that emerges burgundy red in the spring and is known for holding its red colour right through the summer taking on a vibrant crimson red in autumn. Rightfully named, Acer Lace Lady, the foliage is deeply dissected and forms an attractive loose crown.

With a final height and spread of only 2 x 2 metres, Acer palmatum dissectum Lace Lady makes a stunning feature tree, perfect for small spaces, planting into large containers or pond side plantings. A fantastic small garden tree or large shrub for interest throughout the Spring, Summer and Autumn, Japanese Maple Lace Lady is best positioned in a moist but well drained soil in slight shade although it is tolerant of full sun.

This mature specimen tree has a girth (circumference of the main stem) of 10-12cm, the spread is over 1m and the clear stem is 130cm.  Whilst expensive (reflecting many years of growth), it will add instant impact and look fantastic.

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order. Many are despatched within 24 hours of receiving the order, but please allow up to 10 working days to be on the safe side. There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached trees or trees over 2.5m in height (all trees called Standard, Premium Standard, Heavy Standard, Extra Heavy Standard, Mature Trees or Pleached) because we have to group orders together into geographic areas for a specialist haulage contractor to deliver. All trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure at no extra charge. Although it is rarely a problem, we do have to say that we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

The vast majority of trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your order. You can give us instructions on where to leave your delivery either via the checkout or send us a separate email. For some mature or pleached trees we may contact you in advance if the delivery driver needs help getting the tree/trees off the vehicle.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

Planting Advice for Acer Dissectum Lace Lady trees

When planting Japanese Maple trees, such as the Acer Dissectum Lace Lady, it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown acer trees can be planted at any time of the year. You will need to carry out the following to prepare your planting site.

Firstly, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole then dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around inside the hole. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees), especially if you have poor soil.

Using 50% of the original soil and 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems. When planting Japanese maple trees, you should use ericaceous compost when possible as this encourages vibrant foliage colour. To see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

Aftercare Advice for Acer Dissectum Lace Lady trees

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young tree and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. If there is snow fall, gently brush the snow from the branches to ensure it does not weigh down the framework and cause damage. If possible, use rain water instead of tap water as this is more acidic and better for foliage colour. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass around the area as this will only encourage it to grow more vigorously. If you know your area is prone to rabbits, we would advise using a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Japanese Maple trees

Pruning should be carried out in the dormant season, from November to March. Japanese Maple trees bleed during other times of the year so pruning can weaken the branches. However, Japanese Maple trees very rarely need pruning. The natural shape is normally the most attractive and pruning should be carried out with a less is more approach. Only remove, crossing, damaged or diseased branches.
