'Oshu Shidare' Japanese maple (Acer palmatum 'Oshu Shidare')
Genus:  Acer
This Japanese maple has long-lobed, deeply divided leaves that are cherry red in the spring, a perfect contrast to the pea green bark. In summer the foliage changes slowly from red to green and back to red in fall. The habit is wide spreading with pendulous branches providing movement in the least of wind. Though slow to mature, it is an easy tree to grow and a striking beauty.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Red spring growth contrasts with pea green bark, pendulous branches provide movement.
Care:  Slightly acidic, well-drained soil, consistent water
Propagation: 

Grafting is the recommended practice for producing more Japanese maples.

Problems: 

Low salts tolerance; deer browsing might be a problem
