One of the most popular Acer varieties, palmatum Atropurpureum is a deciduous shrub that develops elegant, deeply lobed leaves with an attractive deep purple colour. This colour lasts all through spring and summer, before turning into a vivid crimson red in the autumn months, providing a burst of fantastic colour later in the year.

This japanese maple prefers to be planted in full sun, but can easily adapt to a partially shaded position in your garden. Atropurpureum can tolerate most soil types, so long as the planting area is moist, but well-drained. We would like to remind customers that the images are for illustration purposes only. Due to the deciduous nature of this plant, your tree may arrive without leaves depending on the time of year.
