Japanese Maples (Acers)

Japanese Maples (Acer palmatum).Very ornamental, slow growing, small deciduous trees or small to medium size bushes which need a sheltered position protected from cold winds, especially from the east. They make perfect specimens for virtually any garden, are generally pest free, disease resistant and heat and humidity tolerant, and as their beauty increases with age, to plant one or more is a worthwhile lifetime investment.
To prevent leaf scorch to their filigree leaves plant in a position out of the early morning sun. Acers prefer a rich soil which is acidic to neutral, moist but free draining. If planting in a container an ericaceous compost or John Innes No. 3 is best used. Tiny purple-red flowers are produced in spring, these being followed by red winged fruits in late summer.

JAPANESE MAPLE, DISSECTUM CRIMSON QUEEN (Acer palmatum dissectum Crimson Queen). Award of Garden MeritNewGo to Top of Page

Considered by many to be the best dome- shaped, red-leafed Acer, with a graceful arching habit and branches weeping right to the ground. The feathery leaves with 7-9 narrow, deeply incised lobes emerge in the spring a deep burgundy red and if in semi-shade this intense colour will hold all the summer until it turns a vibrant crimson in the autumn before the leaves fall. If in full sun the leaves will fade slightly and may take on shades of green before their autumn flush. Small purple flowers appear in spring to be followed by purple fruits. This variety makes a stunning feature and its cascading habit offers winter interest even when void of leaves. Plant in moist but well drained acid to neutral soil in a position sheltered from strong winds. Height 4-8ft (1.5-2.5m), spread 4-8ft (1.5-2.5m).
