Acer palmatum 'Inaba-shidare' is a small, deciduous ornamental Japanese Maple with dissected, purple feathery leaves that turn a brilliant scarlet-red in the autumn. Its growth is upright but mound-forming, the branches cascading from the crown and creating a highly appealing and attractive aesthetic that make this an exceptionally popular variety.
Japanese Maple 'Inaba-shidare' is the perfect focal point for small gardens but it's elegant, waterfall shape and vibrant foliage means it can also look incredibly beautiful reflected in water, if positioned by an ornamental pool or pond.
Acer palmatum 'Inaba-shidare' is fairly tolerant of most soil conditions as long as it is moist and well-drained. Being a little hardier than other varieties it will even tolerate some full sun in which its foliage bursts with colour and vitality. However, it is probably best suited to dappled shade and out of strong sun under which its leaves could potentially scorch. Plant in a sheltered spot protected from strong winds.
