Tips on planting Japanese Maples

Acer palmatum


Zone 6

(Europe 7)

Another new addition for me this year (2005) This is a most beautiful shrub like plant with an astonishing bright pink leaf colour in Spring

It is supposed to turn a reddish green in Summer

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.
