Acer palmatum


Zone 6

(Europe 7)

A new plant for me in 2005

It is a small shrub like plant with the most beautiful pink leaf, with clear veining

I am told the autumn colour is an orange/red

Spring colour in particular is very striking

These pictures show the different colours of this plant at varying times of the year

REMEMBER that all Japanese Maples prefer a slightly acid well drained soil with a constant moisture content.
