Acer palmatum (Large Plant)

Japanese Maple

Hardy Tree

The Japanese Maple is always in demand and popular in gardens up and down the UK. Acer palmatum makes a magnificent, small tree for a sheltered corner in dappled shade, so is ideal for those difficult parts of the garden.

The Acer palmatum is a slow-growing tree which is perfect for containers, thanks to the open shape of the tree and its graceful appearance. The foliage is delicate, and turns from mid green during summer to a mix of oranges, yellows and reds before it falls in the autumn. Height and spread: Up to 8m (26').

Grow Acer palmatum trees in any moist, fertile, well drained soil in sun or dappled shade. It is quite important to give plants shelter from strong winds which can scorch the leaves. Alternatively grow the Japanese Maple in large containers, using a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until Acer trees are well established, and always protect your plants from strong winds. Acers require little pruning other than to maintain their shape. Lightly trim stems if necessary from late autumn to midwinter.

  1. Stunning leaves

    By KRYSTAL CUNNINGHAM 25-08-2015

    I purchased this Japanese Maple three weeks ago, it came small and compact and now in such a short space of time it has grown very well with the most mesmerizing colors coming through already! After a rainfall it looks like it has jewels all over the leaves and its beautiful to see. The condition is amazing and I cannot wait to see this emerge over the next few months and years. Great service from a trusted company.
