A slow growing shrub, when matured a small multi-stemmed tree. Rarely reaches more than 2 -3 m. The crown grows wider than tall creating an umbrella-shaped figure. The leaf is palmatifid to palmatisect and the lobes are cut deeply. It has five to seven (sometimes nine) long pointed lobes. The leaf retains its purple-red colour all summer. In autumn it turns bright red. 'Crimson Queen' is one of the best cultivars of the large and shape-abundant group of Japanese maples. It strongly resembles the cultivar 'Garnet', however the latter grows faster. A partially shaded site is best, but a sunny site will be tolerated. To be applied in gardens, parks and as a solitary.
