This beautiful Japanese maple is fantastic for autumn colour. It has large, seven-lobed, mid-green leaves, 10cm to 12cm (4in to 5in) long, which turn bright red in autumn. Like other Japanese maples, it needs a sunny or partially-shaded spot sheltered from cold winds. The soil should be moist but well-drained. It is suitable for growing in a large container, using John Innes No 3 compost, but must be kept well-watered. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it its Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Looks good with:Acer palmatum var. dissectum 'Green Globe'
