    Clusters of tiny, red-purple spring flowers and vivid, young, lime-green leaves turning orange and red in autumn.

The striking foliage is best in partial or dappled shade, protected from cold, drying winds and excessive sun.

  • Garden care: Add a top-dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of the plant in late spring. No routine pruning is required. Remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in April when the plant is in full growth.

Are these plants grafted to a standard acer rootstock, or on their own roots?


Yes, like many of the ornamental Japanes maples, these plants have been grafted.


Is this acer suitable to grow in a pot

Cat 1

Yes, it is possible to grow this in a really large pot for a number of years, however ultimately it will be happier in a pot.
