Acer palmatum - (Japanese Maple)


A favourite for bonsai hobbyists, with a small leaf and graceful habit, forming the perfect miniature tree


During autumn, the trees are blessed with magnificent bright red leaves


Grows 3-4 feet within a bonsai pot or around 12 feet after 10 years within open ground


Fully frost hardy. Protect very young plants and seedlings from hard frosts initially


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
