Features

notes

Japanese acers offer a wonderful oriental elegance in the garden. Deciduous Acer palmatum Bi Ho is a gloriously coloured, compact example that provides changing colour across the growing season. The deeply incised, lobed foliage is a bright yellow green that is tinged with salmon pink when it emerges in spring, turning a glorious yellow/orange colour in the autumn. The leaves then drop to reveal golden/yellow stems for winter interest.

Insights

This acer is perfect for a small or courtyard garden and can be grown in a large container. Its superb stem colour makes it a boon in the winter garden. Acers do need a sheltered position where their delicate foliage can dance on the breeze and have some protection from the elements.
