Product Description

This stunning Acer is guaranteed to make an impact in your garden for years to come. Fully hardy even in the coldest winters they lose their leaves in winter, only to burst with incredible colour in spring.

The stunning foliage changes colour throughout the year, producing an amazing array of colours in Autumn.
Acer atropurpureum ‘Red Maple’ has a classic deep burgundy-purple leaves that turn an even more brilliant shade of bright red in Autumn, just before they fall.

Acers are slow growing, making them ideal for growing in large pots or smaller gardens, where once planted, they are very easy to maintain, and reward you with gorgeous foliage displays for many years.

They do well in light shade, as the brightest Summer hot sun can scorch the paler coloured leaves occasionally.

Supplied as a 2-year-old potted plant in a 3L pot, well-branched, and trimmed back to approx. 60cm tall.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Leaf colour is best in partial shade, although full sun can be tolerated. Leaf scorch can be caused by lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Acer palmatum Atropurpureum:

  • If your soil is slightly acidic, then you have the perfect conditions to grow Japanese maples - however do not worry if you have not as most can be grown in other soils as long as they are not wet, dry or very alkaline.
  • If growing in a pot, use a 50/50 mix of ericaceous and multipurpose compost if you can - although again don't worry overly about this.
  • If planting in the garden, prepare a wide hole and loosen the soil with a fork, incorporating organic matter as needed to improve moisture retention and condition.
  • Plant your Acer so that the top of the root ball is just slightly below ground level.
  • Fill the planting hole with soil and heel well in. Water well.

 

Aftercare advice for your Acer palmatum:

  • Leaf colour is best in partial shade, although full sun can be tolerated as long as the plant is well watered.
  • Avoid exposed places as leaves can suffer with windburn (scorch), especially if the plant is dry.
  • Allow your Japanese Maple to get used to a whole day in the sun by starting it off in the shade, then standing it in its final sunny spot (in pot or in the garden soil) for one hour longer every day for a week.
  • Water regularly and deeply.
  • Feed with our specialist Acer feed.
  • Mulch every couple of years with well-rotted garden compost or well-rotted manure or leaf mould.

 

Pruning advice for your Acer Atropurpureum:

  • Acers generally do not need pruning, just remove any branches that are dead or damaged.

Keeping to your word is a good thing and replacing items must have its problems but you have changed things for the better.

This was a replacement item for one that died and I must admit that this Acer was much better than the original one I received.

Have had a lot of problems recently regarding life time guarantee products. Also found out Garden Bargains/You Bargains are the same company of which myself and other customers were not aware. Up until this occurred their rating was good but one of the emails was not very helpful at all and in fact made me fell like an idiot and also despite the right order from ideal world the wrong item was sent.
