They are deciduous shrubs or small trees. It grows to 6–10 m, rarely 16 m. It often grows as undergrowth in deciduous forests. It can grow as a multi-strain.
Cultivar Dissectum Viridis belongs to a group of shear-like maples. It grows to a height of 2 meters and a width of 2.5 meters. Truncated plants form cascades of overhanging branches in a deep green color. In the autumn, it turns into beautifully golden to orange-red shades.
Demands: Protected shaded habitats with sufficiently moist, permeable, humous soil. These varieties do not like the direct all-day sun. Pests usually do not suffer from this maple. Especially in the first years after planting, winter protection against strong frost and in summer against strong sun are recommended.
