Acer palmatum (Japanese maple) are small, deciduous trees grown for their graceful habit, beautiful coloured foliage that is often deeply dissected the Acer is a perfect addition to any garden especially if you’re looking to add some autumn interest. Many cultivars are extremely slow growing, making them perfect for small gardens or grown in pots.
Acer palmatum ‘Atropurpureum’ is a beautiful small deciduous cultivar, bearing the most attractive, deep burgundy maple shaped leaves. In winter the foliage turns a really bright scarlet. Tiny purple flowers appear in spring time on mature specimens, often followed by winged, purple fruits.
Can be grown in a large tub, or in the back of the border to form a large shrub or small tree that won’t overgrow the garden. Leaf colouring is best in partial shade, but they can tolerate full sun, however, leaf scorch may occur.
