In a Nutshell
Supplied as three plants in a single pot, this variety can complement most contemporary gardens or patios
- Small, deciduous trees
- Autumn colour
- Colourful mix of three hardy plants
- Starting in the spring, one should see the acid green, green and red leaves gradually emerge from the individual plants, then into summer, they shall start a transition through green and red and then; shades of fiery orange, yellow and red as the autumn progresses
- Supplied as three separate varieties of Acer palmatum
- Grown together in a single pot
- Varieties included: Atropurpureum, Orange Dream and Going Green
- Leaf colour is best in partial shade, although full sun can be tolerated
- Leaf scorch can be caused by lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure
- Expected height at maturity: 4m
- Bloom period: May and June
- If the soil is slightly acidic, then you have the perfect conditions to grow Japanese maples - however, do not worry if you have not as most can be grown in other soils as long as they are not wet, dry or very alkaline
- If the growing in a pot, use a 50/50 mix of ericaceous and multipurpose compost if you can - although again do not worry overly about this
- If planting in the garden, prepare a wide hole and loosen the soil with a fork, incorporating organic matter as needed to improve moisture retention and condition
- Plant the Acer so that the top of the root ball is just slightly below ground level
- Fill the planting hole with soil and heel well in - water well
- Leaf colour is best in partial shade, although full sun can be tolerated as long as the plant is well watered
- Avoid exposed places as leaves can suffer from windburn (scorch), especially if the plant is dry.=
- Allow the Japanese Maple to get used to a whole day in the sun by starting it off in the shade, then standing it in its final sunny spot (in a pot or in the garden soil) for one hour longer every day for a week
- Water regularly and deeply
- Mulch every couple of years with well-rotted garden compost or well-rotted manure or leaf mould
- Acers generally do not need pruning, just remove any branches that are dead or damaged
