Description

Native to Japan, the vine-leaved maple is a small, deciduous tree that typically grows to a height of 20 to 30 feet. Although it is rarely seen in cultivation, it is easily grown in average, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade but is happiest in cool summer climates. The tree is dioecious (there are separate male and female plants) and is known best for its compound trifoliate leaves that resemble those of some ashes and ivies.
