This delicate looking, lacy leaved Acer is a real garden classic. A compact and easily managed small tree, ideal for smaller garden borders as a specimen or in large pots and works especially well in modern style gardens too in metallic planters – a great urban garden plant.
This standard style has been fashioned by expert nurserymen over several years and will add a real touch of class to your garden. Being slow growing it will keep its shape well with minimal attention.
The leaves are very fine and lace-like, emerging each spring a lovely lime green, which deepens slightly over summer, then in autumn, it turns the most amazing orange, a wonderful finale to its growing season – falling dormant to repeat its virtuoso performance all over again year after year.
Reaching a maximum of 6ft (approx. 2m) in 10 years, its natural habit is slightly spreading, so has a large bonsai like style of growth. Great for oriental inspired themes. A real garden 'must-have' for low maintenance and style.
