Acer palmatum ‘Atropurpureum’

Small and slow growing, with a change of colour in every season, Acer palmatum ‘Atropurpureum’ makes an excellent choice for making a statement in a tight space. In Spring new leaves are a deep burgundy, becoming a copper red during the Summer. In Autumn foliage becomes a bright and bold crimson. With consistent watering Acer palmatum ‘Atropurpureum’ grows best in at least some afternoon shade and protection from hot wind.

  1. Didn’t know what to expect when we planted this new tree. Love the colours and it complements my client’s property nicely.
