A lovely tree for a small garden or large container, with a naturally bushy habit and attractive purple leaves which turn a brilliant blood red in autumn. Trees grow slowly to a height of about 4-8m. There are small dark red flowers in spring, but these trees are mostly grown for their attractive leaves and good form. They also make good bonsai subjects.
Purple Japanese Acers grow best in part shade in a sheltered situation. They prefer moist well-drained neutral to slightly acidic soil. They prefer not to be crowded by other plants, and donít like to dry out. They are maintenance free once established,needing little or no pruning and an occasional mulch of compost.
Pack of 10 seeds. Growing these plants from seed is a slow process, so best for an experienced propagator who does not give up too easily. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
