Tiny reddish-purple crimson flowers appear in the spring carried in upright clusters. Followed by vivid lime green leaves which turn into a stunning golden orange and red in the autumn. A wonderful choice for any sized garden!

Acer Growing Tips: Very easy to grow in a wide range of well-drained soils. They thrive in sun but with partial shade to protect the leaves from scorch. A sheltered area away from strong winds is preferred.
