Acer Palmatum

Acer palmatum, commonly known as Japanese maple, is a small deciduous tree or shrub renowned for its exquisite foliage and graceful form. Originating from Japan, Korea, and China, this species is prized in gardens and landscapes for its stunning display of colours, especially in autumn.

The leaves of Acer palmatum vary widely in shape and colour, with some having deeply lobed, palmate leaves, while others exhibit delicate, lacy foliage. In spring, new leaves emerge in vibrant hues of red, orange, yellow, or green, creating a spectacle of colour. As summer progresses, the leaves often deepen in colour, providing a lush backdrop for the garden.

Come autumn, the Japanese maple truly shines, as the leaves transform into brilliant shades of red, orange, and gold. The tree’s elegant silhouette and the kaleidoscope of colours make it a standout feature in any landscape. Acer palmatum is a versatile plant, thriving in a range of climates and soil types, provided it has good drainage. It is often used as a focal point in gardens, as a specimen tree, or in Japanese-style gardens where its beauty and tranquillity are celebrated.
