Characteristics: Acer Vitifolium, commonly known as Japanese Maple, is a deciduous garden tree known for its spectacular autumn colours. Leaves emerge bronze in spring, turning green as the season progresses and eventually turning crimson in autumn.
Growth and spread: These acer trees are relatively small, reaching an ultimate height of approximately 5-10 metres, making them ideal for smaller sized gardens where they will not overwhelm the area.
Care and maintenance: Plant in moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil in full sun or partial shade in a sheltered area.
Period of interest: Small, red flowers bloom in spring before foliage emerges bronze, changing colours throughout the season until it dies away each winter.
Acer Vitifolium, commonly known as the Japanese Maple, are considered as large garden shrubs or smaller garden trees. In spring, before foliage emerges, clusters of small, deep red flowers bloom, eventually accompanied by rustic, bronze leaves which change to green over the summer months. When autumn comes around, leaves once again change, turning shades of stunning gold and fiery crimson.
Plant your Japanese Maple Tree in full sun to partial shade, in moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil where it will thrive. These outdoor trees are ideal for slightly smaller gardens, where they can add a splash of autumn colour without overwhelming the space. They are ideal for growing in a large plant pot when smaller, and they can then be planted as a focal point, or in beds and borders among other shrubs.
