This stunning Acer is guaranteed to make an impact in your garden for years to come. Fully hardy even in the coldest weather, they lose their leaves in winter, only to burst with incredible colour in spring. The stunning foliage changes colour throughout the year, producing an amazing array of colours in Autumn.Acer 'Atropurpureum' has classic deep burgundy-purple leaves that turn a brilliant shade of bright red in Autumn, just before they fall. Acers are slow growing, making them ideal for growing in large pots or smaller gardens, where once planted, they are very easy to maintain, and reward you with gorgeous foliage displays for many years. They do well in light shade, as heat of the brightest summer sun can scorch the paler coloured leaves occasionally.
