Acer buergerianum Maple

Description: Acer buergerianum produces a round crown of lush green summer foliage which turns into striking red-orange autumn colour. The leaves have very slender loves ending in long, tapering points. A bushy, small tree that can be slow growing. Ideal for the smaller space or small garden. Mature trees have attractive reddish brown flaking bark. Very often found in the wild.

History: Introduced in Japan in 1890.

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.
