- Acers are easy to grow plants that give an amazing splash of colour from spring to winter.
- Acer palmatum ‘Atropurpureum’ is a slow-growing acer, bearing deeply lobed, red-purple leaves that turn a brilliant scarlet in autumn before falling.
- It makes a beautiful small tree, and the deepest purple colouring results from a spot with more light, while the foliage will be greener in low light areas.
- It is a popular choice for Bonsai enthusiasts and Japanese themed gardens.
Can grow up to 6 m in the right conditions.
