Product Description

One of the most striking Acers for smaller gardens, pots and patios, this unusually coloured Japanese Maple gives you a kaleidascope of fabulous colour through the year.

In spring, the five-lobed, slightly-twisted leaves emerge predominantly white with pink tips and shading  - a fabulous sight to behold - before maturing to green heavily-mottled and edged with white and pink.

Fully at home in Oriental-style gardens, flower borders or on your patio in a large pot, where it can remain for 10 years quite happily, Acer Ukigomo is a garden plant that no gardener should be without!

Supplied in a 13cm pot, ready for you to plant out or pot on.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Plants enjoy regular watering and a sheltered position to keep the leaves at their best. Leaf colour is best in partial shade, although full sun can be tolerated as long as the plant is well watered.

Care Guide

  • When positioning your acer, avoid exposed places as leaves can suffer with wind-burn (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.
  • 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 palmatum 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.
