Features

notes

Acers need little introduction; with the lightest touch, they add ravishing colour, shape and movement to a garden. This dwarf variety, Acer palmatum Inaba-Shidare, reaches its full height after two decades, making it ideal for planting in a container to decorate the borders of paths, gravel areas (very Japanese) or position on a terrace.

Insights

The leaves are carefully serrated and deeply lobed – they dance fabulously in the breeze. In the spring these leaves are green, then, as they mature, they turn purple and fade to crimson in autumn.

Details

Hardy

Planting
  • All soil types

Care

Prune if necessary in November. Its preference for a slightly acidic soil makes it an ideal candidate for a container.
