Native to Japan, Acer palmatum is a highly ornamental large shrub or eventually small tree with variable deeply cut green summer leaves and handsome autumn colour once established. 

Although tolerant of a sunny position, in particularly hot areas this usually has better quality summer leaves with less risk of scorch damage if planted in a position with dappled to partial shade.


  • Position: Full sun or partial shade.
  • Soil: Well drained, fertile soil. Avoid waterlogged areas.
  • Hardiness: Hardy. Will grow best when planted in an area sheltered from strong winds.
  • Rate of Growth: Moderate.
  • Habit: Eventually a large shrub or small architectural branching tree in time with a rounded habit.
    • Height: 5 - 6 m (16 - 20 ft) / up to 2  - 2.5 m (6 - 8 ft) after 10 years
    • Spread: 6 m (20 ft) / up to 2 - 2.5 m (6 - 8 ft) after 10 years
  • Notes: These Acer palmatum are all seed grown and will be variable in terms of eventual habit and autumn colour once established. Some will have autumn colour which is orange & red whilst others will have leaves which turn lovely shades of yellow, gold or bronze as they fall.
