Acer Japonicum 'Aconitifolium'ID4741
Acer Japonica 'Aconitifolium' is an elegant maple that is one of the best for autumn colour. It can be grown as a small spreading tree or multi-stemmed shrub and is brilliant for adding architectural interest!
Before the leaves emerge in spring, it produces small clusters of purple-red flowers which are extremely pretty up close. The mid green deeply cut foliage has a fern-like appearance and will turn spectacular shades of red and orange in autumn - especially when grown in partial shade. A super plant that has been awarded the coveted Award of Garden Merit by the RHS.

Plant Care & Advice
In an ideal situation, an Acer should have a slightly acidic, sandy, well drained soil that does not dry out in summer or become waterlogged in winter. Acers have shallow fibrous root systems which benefit from an annual mulch of organic matter. This also helps avoid wilt. If any pruning is undertaken it should only be done to improve their overall shape and to encourage healthy growth.
