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.

A shirasawanum hybrid with leaves emerging an unusual pastel orange in spring turning to striking lime-green and yellow from spring all through summer and taking on tints of orange-red in autumn before leaf fall. Very showy bright red seed heads are held well above the foliage in summer contrasting dramatically with the foliage. A slow growing form with an upright bushy habit when mature, and with attractive pale green bark. Grow in sun or partial shade, but will not tolerate full sun. Height 7ft (2m), spread 6ft (150cm).
