Acer palmatum Orange Dream (Japanese Maple) produces ever-changing foliage which brings interest throughout the year. In spring, dainty red flowers are interspersed amongst lime-yellow foliage which has fiery margins of coral red all the way around each leaf. In summer, these red shades seem to fade away, leaving behind a clean and vivid bright green. In orange, the deeper coloured edges are back, but instead of lime-yellow like in spring, the leaves are a golden, sandier colour. A slow growing but stunning Japanese Maple, ideal for small gardens or large containers. Water well until established to ensure a strong, healthy plant. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit 2012. Eventual height 3m in 10 years. 12cm pot grown plants supplied.

Pruning

Plant in fertile, well drained and moist soil. Acer shrubs prefer sunny or partial shaded areas, and can also be grown in pots. If growing in pots make sure that the pot is large enough to support the shrub and that it also has plenty of drainage holes. Use John Innes compost if planting in pots.
Acers should be watered on a regular basis, which will be even more important in hot Summers. Although its not necessary, you can prune back or cut dead wood in Spring.
