Acer elegantulum - (Elegant Maple)

 

A rare and beautiful species of Acer, only introduced to the UK in 1990 - with five-lobed leaves emerging deep purple and reds in the spring, turning green and then brilliant orange and scarlets in the autumn

 

The trees are easy to keep small (if desired) with pruning

 

Makes an excellent bonsai tree as the roots are very shallow and it is easily dwarfed

 

Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack
