Buy Acer palmatum 'Emerald Lace' Japanese maple: Very finely dissected foliage

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

    Very finely dissected emerald green leaves appear on the arching branches, creating a softly rounded crown, which turns dazzling shades of red and orange in autumn, just before the leaves drop. It makes a wonderful addition to the shrub border, but its handsome silhouette and fine foliage also makes it a worthy specimen plant. Its somewhat compact habit also means it will be quite happy in a large pot, provided it is kept well fed and watered.

  • 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.

Hello, If you are looking for a forever home, then I would suggest something arounf 75 x 75cm, but you can pot it up into something smaller if you are doing it in stages.
