Tips on planting Japanese maples

Acer palmatum

'Beni Maiko'

'Dancing Girl'

Zone 6

(Europe 7)

One of the very brilliant scarlet/red dwarf palmatums. Fire red in spring, truning greenish red in summer

Similar to Shindeshojo I lost the original and  I have just bought a replacement in 2016

I am looking forward to seeing it mature this year (2017)

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

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