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.

In semi-shade this intense colour will hold all summer until it turns a vibrant crimson in the autumn, or in full sun the leaves will fade slightly and take on shades of green before turning crimson-red in autumn before falling. Protect from the mid-day sun. 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. Excellent specimen for containers, pond sides or in borders.

Plant in moist but well drained acid to neutral soil in a position sheltered from strong winds. Grafted at 50cm, height 1.5m-2m (4-6ft), spread 1-2m (3-6ft).

Pot Grown Plants

These are normally sold in small 9cm wide pots, unless a different pot size is shown (where the pot size is shown in litres). Pot grown plants can be planted at any time of the year.


Pot Grown are generally available all year.

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.
