Plant Finder: about Acer palmatum

Common names

Japanese maple, Blood-leaf Japanese maple, Coral-bark maple, Maple

Description

Acer palmatum (Japanese maple). This tree grows in different forms, from a low mound to a broad round-headed tree. In the autumn the leaves will turn a brilliant red, orange or yellow; they are 5 to 10cms long and may have 5 to 10 lobes. This species is resistant to oak-root fungus. Pruning is not really needed because of its natural branching growth pattern. It can be grown as a mound or even planted in a container.

Cultivation

It will prefer warmer climates than most other maples. It will need shade and shelter or the leaves may shrivel.

Interest and use

Ornamental, foliage, specimen with good autumn colour.
