Tips on planting Japanese Maples

Acer palmatum

'Shikage Ori Nishiki'

Zone 6

(Europe 7)

Strong growing maturing at about 3 metres

Does broaden out to form a large bush

Not widely known and new to me this year (2007)

Autumn colour is apparently a beautiful orange which I await with interest

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.
