The typical japanese maple that colours well. This acer will tolerate some lime. Try to plant in moist soil that has been well prepared with organic matter. The plant like all acers will not enjoy an exposed location so consider where you can plant this lovely maple. Don't be put of by the fact its foliage is a green colour. The autumn colours turn the lobed leaves vivid colours ranging from red, orange and yellow which make this a must in any garden where conditions allow. An ideal tree for creating a Japanese garden where its height and form immediate convey an oriental message. Planted to allow the late Autumn sun to set behind it will illuminate the foliage emphasing the colours. It will form a small tree but its foliage cast only light shade to plants beneath.
