Outdoor Plant of the Month – Ornamental Acers
Acers, or Japanese Maple trees, are fine leafy treasures known for their distinctive leaf shapes and vibrant ornamental foliage in a myriad of stunning colours from lime green to pink and burgundy, vivid shades of scarlet, crimson and fiery oranges and yellows.
Prized for their elegant habit, their graceful branches exude tranquility, arching to form sculptural domed shapes or making supremely elegant upright shrubs and small trees.
We have a great selection of Ornamental Acers in stock and our Plant Information & Advisory team are on hand to help with your selection.
The two most popular Ornamental Acers are;
Acer palmatum – small, deciduous trees grown for their graceful habit, autumn colour and beautiful foliage. These elegant, slow growing trees make ideal specimen trees and are perfect for growing in smaller garden or in large containers.
Acer palmatum Dissectum – a beautifully, delicate, mound-forming Maple boasting an abundance of spring green or red, finely cut leaves giving a wispy, feathery look. Foliage turns red/gold in autumn. Perfect for bringing a tranquil, oriental feel to your border, patio or rockery garden. Prefers a sheltered, partially shaded spot, protected from strong sun light and winds.
