Acer Shirasawanum Jordan 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.
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 Shirasawanum Jordan is one of the more unusual acers with beautiful scolloped beautiful golden foliage that turns brilliant red in autumn. Height can reach 3 meters.
