Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

The Waterfall Japanese Maple, also known by its scientific name Acer palmatum 'Waterfall', is a deciduous tree native to Japan. It's known for its cascading growth habit and beautiful, finely cut leaves.

Here are some key features of the Waterfall Japanese Maple:

  1. Foliage: The leaves are finely cut into narrow lobes, giving them a lace-like appearance. They are green in the summer and turn vibrant shades of yellow and gold in the fall.

  2. Size: This tree typically grows to a height of 8-10 feet and spreads 10-12 feet wide. Its cascading branches give it a waterfall-like appearance, hence the name.

Prefers full sun in cooler climates, but needs afternoon shade in southern areas.
