There are hundreds of beautiful varieties of Acer palmatum or Japanese Maples to choose from. Most forms become large shrubs or small trees and will tolerate some lime but prefer good loam soils and shelter.
Acer palmatum feature graceful habits, elegantly cut leaves and colourful foliage both through the summer and in autumn. Their slow growth habit make these trees perfect for growing in pots.
