A popular maple ideal for small gardens which is grown for its deeply divided, rich purple-red leaves and dome-like habit. The garnet-coloured leaves hold their colour well in spring and summer, turn pleasing shades of yellow and orange in autumn before falling.

The low rounded habit makes this Acer particularly suitable for growing in a large tub or container and eye-catching when planted as part of a low border or next to a small stream or pond.
