Acer palmatum Dissectum 50 Litre Pot
Acer Palmatum or Japanese Maples include ever increasing numbers of new and interesting forms almost by the month. They range from dwarf shrubs up to small trees. Acer Palmatum has a finely distinct pink flush, before becoming bronze-green and then green
They are easy to grow and prefer a little dapple shade and a site out of strong winds.Best planted in slightly acidic soil and not too wet.
When pruning Japanese maples you should concider doing in Autumn/Winter when the sap is falling as doing it in spring can make them bleed too much and it is possible to lose entire limbs.
Acer Palmatum Dissectum grows with tiered pyramids of hand like arching branches of beautiful emerald cut leaves. Fantastic autumn colours from orange to red. Gets to about 2 metres in 10 years and tends to keep as more of a mound in form.
