The Japanese Maple, Acer palmatum Jerre Schwartz, is a superb, dwarf, ornamental tree which can be treated as a glorious specimen in a large container or planted in the border. Deeply cut, the wonderfully shaped leaves start in a spring flushed pink, mature into bronze for the summer, then become vibrant red in the autumn.

This modern variety has been bred to retain all the beauty of a traditional Acer, but with more resilience, so it is winter hardy and will tolerate full sun. It is superb all year as once the leaves have dropped, the bare branches take on a new life and look superb when threaded with fairy lights.


Flowers: Acers produce insignificant flowers in the spring which develop into attractively winged seed pods

  • Moist, well drained, slightly acidic soil
  • Container
  • Full sun, partial shade
  • South, east, west facing
  • Hardy
  • Sheltered

Acers need sunlight but planting them in a sheltered, partially sunny position will heighten the colour. The preference for a slightly acidic soil can indicate container planting. Do not allow them to dry out; water in summer especially if planted in a container. Too exposed or too dry and the leaves may scorch. Prune lightly in November if necessary.
