One of the best maples for bright leaf 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.
Acer palmatum 'Katsura' will give its best display of colourful leaves in a position with full sun or light, dappled shade and some shelter from strong winds if possible.
Supplied Size: 3L pots (approx 3 - 4 years old, 60 - 80 cm tall)
