Acer palmatum ‘dissectum atropurpureum’

A tried and tested variety with a deeper spring foliage colour than Acer pacer palmatum ‘dissectum inaba shidare’, Acer palmatum ‘dissectum atropurpureum’ fades over the summer to a stylish bronzed green. In Autumn the lace like foliage turns to striking reds and oranges. These slow growing weeping standards are useful in a small space like a light well or courtyard and are a must for a Japanese style garden. They are at their best when positioned where they are protected from the harshest sun and hot winds and require even moisture to flourish.
