Enlarge Picture Enlarge picture

 

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.

Ideal for small gardens and pots. A fantastic Acer with a weeping habit. The finely dissected leaves that look like feathers emerge very red in spring, turning fire red in summer, before turning a wonderful crimson in the autumn. Full sun to partial shade. Height 1m (39ins), spread 2m (7ft).
