Lace Maple

ACER PALMATUM VAR. DISSECTUM ATROPURPUREA

Acer palmatum are deciduous small trees and shrubs, with opposing five pointed leaves, native to Japan, China and Korea. There are at present hundreds of varieties in cultivation. Palmatum species are separated from other Acer species within their genus by way of their 5 pointed leaves.

The exquisite foliage and compact, mound-like habit make this cut-leaf Japanese maple an excellent specimen tree for small gardens. Grown in a large ornamental container it brings colour and sculptural interest to a patio or courtyard garden.
