The cycle of vivid colour produced by an Acer provides a year-long display when exhibited as a feature piece installed in a black minimalist planter.
Alternatively, try underplanting with Fargesia to create an exoctic, oriental border perhaps surrounded by taller, Phyllostachys bamboo to create your own Asian-inspired enclave.
Their bold, vibrant colours and distinct, elegant leaf shapes make Acers an incredibly sought after ornamental tree and a favourite with collectors who can amass a profusion of uniquely different varieties.
Both Japanese and Norwegian varieties are fast growing, hardy & perfectly suited to the UK climate.
We've curated a selection of our favorite Acers with the whole spectrum of colours & unique foliage sure to bring oriental charm to your garden.
