For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

One of the best maples for foliage colour in spring, Acer palmatum 'Katsura' has five lobed leaves which emerge golden-yellow, with an orange edge in spring.

The leaves gradually fade to a dark green by the middle of summer, before once again turning a rich orange and yellow in autumn just before they fall. A superb, colourful plant!
