The Japanese maple Butterfly is a compact, upright deciduous tree. Its unique five-lobed rich green leaves are ringed with hints of cream and sometimes pink in the spring. During autumn the leaves turn to a beautiful combination of dark green and scarlet before falling.

The tree is ideal as a feature piece for smaller gardens or could be placed in a large container for patios.

  • Planting Advice

    Spring and Autumn are the best seasons for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems. Although Japanese Maple trees do require some sunlight, they are best planted in a sheltered condition to avoid waterlogged soil.

    Care and Maintenance

    Japanese Maples reach their unique shape when left to grow naturally, so little pruning is required. If you are going to prune your tree, do so in the winter time as sap is produced, which can weaken the tree. Remove any dead branches and keep it well watered.
