Hi. We ordered 3 Acers online a month or 2 back. 2 are true to what we ordered but we are a bit dubious about the 3rd. Could anyone identify it for us from the photos provided?
Thanks.

Definately looks like one of the 'dissectum' varieties, maybe 'ornatum' or 'seiryu'.

Thanks for getting in touch. We were told this variety was "Little Princess". Have you any tips or info on where to place it, what size it will grow to, etc.?

Took the following info from a growers web-site. We have no personal experience with this variety but good tip is, when you know a name, do a google image search, find a picture that matches, then follow the link to the site. Sometimes its just a picture someone else has posted, sometimes its another grower or seller that will have specifics on care.
Acer palmatum 'Little Princess'
(Acer palmatum 'Chiyo-hime')
Hardy Tree
This superb Japanese Maple is cloaked in lovely red tinged summer foliage, turning to vibrant yellows and oranges by autumn. The best leaf colours are produced in a partially shaded position which is sheltered from drying winds. With its slow growing, compact habit, Acer palmatum 'Little Princess makes a fantastic dwarf specimen tree for a patio container, reaching only 150cm at maturity. Height and spread: 150cm (59").
