"Acer palmatum 'Katsura' 25L Pot

This Acer provides one of the finest, most varied display of colour that you can find in a tree. The lobed leaves are a bright orange when they first emerge in spring, but they quickly turn to an orange-tinged yellow with a pink outline. As spring continues, the colour deepens to a rich green, but then in autumn the leaf changes full cycle back to a bright orange hue before they drop.

A magnificent small tree or large shrub for a smaller garden where you can sit back and watch the show unfold throughout the year.

    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.

    "Product clearly neglected - bone dry on delivery and mis-shapen, not what you hope for on a £100 single-item purchase."
