Dissectum Viride Group has a low, spreading habit and specimens are often multi-stemmed. The leaves are so dissected as to appear almost shredded. Although green through the spring and summer they show good autumn colour. Red flowers are a discrete attraction in spring. These develop into winged fruit, typical of the genus. The origin of these plants is in the Far East, in particular Japan, Korea and China. Moist but well drained soil is recommended along with clay and loam additions. This plant has a high hardiness rating of H6 making it perfect for the UK climate. Only shelter in an extreme cold snap. It is affected by potential diseases and pests so take care when looking after this plant. The maximum height it can grow is between 1.5 m – 2.5 m (4.9 ft – 8.2 ft) and the maximum width is between 1.5 m – 2.5 m (4.9 ft – 8.2 ft).
