With its brilliant Autumn colour, delicate leaves and ornate branches, the Japanese Maple is a beautiful deciduous tree that is attractive all year round. It remains quite small throughout its life, reaching a maximum height of only 5 metres in roughly 20 years. This makes it perfect for and very popular in urban gardens.

Japanese Maples have a good tolerance to most soil types and conditions once established, although they prefer a cooler position. They are frost tolerant, but don’t do as well in a areas of strong wind and direct hot sun.
