Acer palmatum ‘Garnet’

For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A popular maple ideal for small gardens grown for its deeply divided, rich purple-red leaves and dome-like habit. The garnet-coloured leaves hold colour well in spring/summer and turn pleasing shades of yellow and orange in autumn before falling.

The low rounded habit makes this Acer particularly suitable for growing in a large tub and eye-catching as part of a low border or next to water.

Supplied Size: 3L containers (30 - 40 cm tall)
