    Actually I purchased mine as a 3' tree for $40 seven years ago, and it's the best money I ever spent. My 'Waterfall' is now 4' tall and about 5-6' wide, and always beautiful. It requires next to no care whatsoever, so it's a perfect garden plant. It's naturally beautiful shape always makes visitors want one just like it.

    I went to a local nursery for flowers and plants for my wife for Mother's Day. Came home with a Waterfall, too!

    I was a little worried about my Mother's Day Waterfall. It was a good buy, looked healthy and has nice form but it was pretty yellowish all over. I figured it was probably that way because of where it was located in the nursery getting full sun. It has greened up nicely now that it gets afternoon shade in its new home.

    This is one of the nicest maples for placing by a water feature. The name does suggest this I know. I do not have it in this position as I like it next to my Red Pygmy which was already in the ground. They do compliment each other well IMO.
    I will add a picture of the two in my last photo. First two taken July 2nd 2020.
    This maple gets full sun until 4pm in the Summer in my garden, then full evening shade. Nothing seems to phase it at all. Fully recommended.

    A shower of rain or heavy as we are having in Southern England atm, this culti ar is aptly named. Always plant it high so that it can drop down a slope and gi e that waterfall appearance.

    August 6th 2020 and extreme heat is forecast over the next few days, so I thought I would post photos of my dissectums before and after to show how they cope. This I feel can be useful for people considering buying a particular variety.

    Well it's the last day of August 2020 and as we have had a lot of rain and cooler weather here in England over the past two weeks, all my maples are doing well for the time of year.
    A few weeks on and my Waterfall has done very well, no matter what was thrown at it.

    7th September 2020 and in Southern England it is getting warmer once again. So surprised to see my maples with such dry leaves this morning. But this year is so very different for so many reasons!!?
    Now the tips are turning on my Waterfall, subtle changes but very delicate and pretty.

    5th October 2020 and very ominous dark skies that made my flash go off when taking photos this morning. So my Waterfall with rain and still a beautiful green was a must for a photo.

    11th October 2020 and my Waterfall is just turning. I love the transition phase as much as full Autumn colour. It really is a pretty time.

    18th October 2020 and now the changes. Always a bit later than my other dissectums but worth the wait.

    24th October 2020 and this little Waterfall that is under my Autumn gold has turned just at the right time.
    My Autumn gold normally turns in mid November so this was planted to give it afternoon shade and a continuance of colours.

    3rd April 2021 and the frosts are coming, but not today, so this is the start of the season for my Waterfall.

    My Waterfall from yesterday, it's looked a bit down over the past few years, so it had some attention given over the past few months a bit of branch removal and vertical mulching ,weeding around the roots and a top layer of bark chips put down. Hopefully should see an improvement this year.

    That is interesting M, didn't realise you had compaction problems with your shale like soil up there. I hope yours does pick up as this is one maple I would never do without. Fingers crossed we are going to have a good season with no wind like last year, so that we can fully appreciate our trees.

    Moved this one to it's present spot three years back now, just seems to have taken longer to bed into it's new area and flourish back from what i was expecting, but it's looking promising.

    17th April 2021 and my Waterfall is underway. This is one of the prettiest greens IMO. It gives and gives all three seasons.
