Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Japanese maples are the perfect option for adding dramatic autumn leaf colour to the garden as well as year round shape and structure. Out latest introduction offers real star quality thanks to a unique foliage. A downward curl to each leaf gives the appearance of a fleshy starfish! The red of each leaf intensifies moving towards autumn, before working through a myriad of shades before leaf fall. Slow growing and upright in habit, Acer 'Starfish' is the perfect tree for a small garden and will perform perfectly in a large patio pot, where planting out isn't an option. Thriving in shade as well as dappled sun, this is the perfect option for filing awkward corners of the garden. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 75cm (30")

Flowering Months
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.
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.
