Tell Me More...
Acer palmatum Atropurpureum also known as the magnificent red Japanese Maple, is a gorgeous perfectly formed small garden tree, which fills your garden with an air of class and opulence; bearing deeply lobed, red-purple leaves which turn a brilliant scarlet in autumn before falling. Acers are rich with symbolism in Japanese culture and feature prominently in peaceful Zen gardens. In Japan, autumn is welcomed in a festival known as 'momiji-gari' or 'maple tree viewing' which celebrates Acers in all their autumnal splendour. You too can capture this awe-inspiring beauty and sense of tranquillity in your own garden with the addition of a 'Phoenix'.This Japanese Maple can eventually reach a height of 4m with a spread of 4m, though its slow growth habit means it can still be planted in a large container or more confined space. This Acer prefers a sheltered position in light shade and thrives on moist but well-drained soil with a mildly acidic or neutral pH. Acers are fully hardy with an hardiness rating of H6. Acers do not need or like pruning. If any pruning is undertaken, it should only be done to improve their overall shape and to encourage healthy growth
