Product Description

An exquisite Japanese Maple with vibrant golden-yellow foliage, new to our range of Acers for 2018!

Acer Palmatum 'Summer Gold' is a superb addition to your garden, with tiered layers of bright leaves which emerge salmon-pink before maturing to an eye-catching display of gold and lime green. This particular variety has shown to be a good grower in areas where other yellow acers have failed to grow, making this a super all-round maple, ideal for beginner gardeners, and proven to be successful!

As with other Japanese Maples, in autumn, Summer Gold puts on an exceptional display of colour, with the leaves gradually turning a beautiful shade of coral before transitioning through salmon-pink, scarlet and finally deep red. The transition is so amazing that you'll want to photograph it every day to keep a record of the superb colour changes.

Grow your Japanese Maple in full sun or partial shade for best colour and keep it well watered to prevent leaf scorch.

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 'Summer Gold':

  • 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 'Summer Gold':

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