Acer palmatum is well known for it’s beautiful array of colours throughout the year, with it’s green foliage turning into a stunning crimson red in the Autumn before falling. Through the Winter it makes up for it’s lack in foliage with it’s greyish-purple bark that stands out.
It has a good tolerance to most soil types and conditions once established. Although it prefers a cooler position making it frost tolerant with moist, well-drained soils. It doesn’t do as well in a area of strong winds and hot sun.
