Buy Acer palmatum 'Dissectum' cut-leaved Japanese maple: Delicate, finely shredded leaves and good autumn colour

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This acer has feathery, mid-green leaves that turn gold and orange in autumn looking as if they have been dissected before they fall. Its rounded, compact habit makes it perfect for a small garden, particularly in a container in a contemporary urban courtyard. Alternatively, try it alongside an ornamental pool, where its sculptural shape will be reflected in the water. It needs a sheltered spot, away from strong winds or all-day sun.

  • Garden care: Add a top-dressing of a well-balanced fertiliser around the base of a newly planted tree in late spring and keep well watered. No routine pruning is required, just remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in late autumn or winter when they are fully dormant.
