Description: Acer palmatum 'Trompenburg' is a graceful form of Japanese Maple which creates stunning all year round interest. Deep purple-red narrow lobed leaves emerge in the spring, turning green in the summer and crimson red in autumn. A favourite for small gardens or planting in a large container.
