Acer Palmatum ‘atropurpureum’ – Japanese maple

Acer Palmatum ‘atropurpureum’  Acer Palmatum

These much sought after acers make an outstanding addition to any garden with their beautiful foliage giving much needed colour in the autumn when gardens can start to look a little drab.

These can grow up to twenty five feet in height but often pruned shorter.

Exquisite in both colour and form, this ornamental Japanese Maple is great in a large patio pot or as a focal point on the lawn or in borders.
The red-purple leaves of this stunning cultivar turn bright red in autumn.

They are expensive to buy as a plant but can be grown very easily and much cheaper from seed.

These trees can also be grown into a stunning bonsai so that the enjoyment can be brought into your home.

Fully hardy and will withstand temperatures down to minus 20c
