Another beautiful tree named after a mountain, Omure yama has several advantages. Young plants are upright, but as the tree matures the branches become pendulous and somewhat resemble a weeping willow. This creates a cascading effect as the tree grows up to 16 feet in height and spreads 13-16 feet. The leaves are deeply divided with seven lobes and deeply divided margins, green in summer and turning a stunning gold and crimson in the fall.

I’ve always had a thing for Japanese plants.
