Acer Palmatum or Japanese Maples are small deciduous trees or woody shrubs with unique lobed foliage and multi-seasonal interest. Orange Dream is a stylish Acer tree that can reach up to a height of 3 metres and features exquisite golden-yellow-green foliage. These multi-colored leaves create a brilliant floral display in spring, summer and autumn. Orange Dream is a perfect specimen tree that is ideal for small gardens or in mass plantings.
Acer trees derive their grace from the natural habitat in Japan, forming an upright tree with a wide canopy of vibrant leaves. The five-lobed leaves emerge as golden with orange-red edges, turning into lime green in summer and then developing shades of bright golden-orange in autumn. In spring, Acer Orange Dream blooms tiny red flowers that are highly ornamental in appearance.
These are a shade loving plant, highly tolerant of urban pollution, thus thriving easily in inner-city environments. Plant them in a sheltered spot away from the full sun, protecting the leaves from hot winds. Acer Orange Dream will thrive in a moist soil that is well-drained. Its roots grow shallow and dislike any competition from nearby grass.
Water it moderately throughout the summer season. Pruning is not necessary, although you can trim for a desired shape or cut any damaged branches. Once the young plants will establish their roots, this Acer Palmatum will grow hardy and drought tolerant.
Acer Orange Dream will perform well in large containers or in borders since its roots grow compact and non-invasive. Its elegant and bright foliage will lighten up shady areas in your garden. It is slow in growth, hence suits all garden landscapes.
