A lovely rare Asian maple. Thick palmate leaves can reach 20 cm wide and first emerge purple-red, becoming blue-green in summer then brilliant scarlet in the autumn depending on the site. Clear jade green bark adds to its beauty. Native to the mountains of southern China, its quite adaptable as a garden specimen. Likes sun, but not hot sun. Provide some water in severe drought.

From the forests of Japan comes this tri-foliate maple. Foliage in spring is soft pink when it unfurls, becomes a lovely mid green in summer, and in the fall becomes orange or yellow depending on sun exposure. Loose sprawling branching from often is a lot wider than tall.

Beautiful paper thin peeling cinnamon coloured layered bark. If this wasn't distinctive enough, the green trifoliate leaves are often coarsely serrated or lobed. Autumn colour consists of brilliant oranges and reds. A very distinctive and unusual maple hardy enough to be used as a street tree in full sun. Relatively slow grower that will eventually reach 14 meters tall with about equal spread in 50 years. Tolerant of clay soils. No pest problems.

Acer japonicum
Acer japonicum (Full Moon Maple)

Broad circular green leaves with up to 9 tapered tips. Looks very much like our native Vine Maple (Acer circinatum) in leaf and artistic or undulating branch form.

Acer palmatum atropurpureum 'Bronze'
Acer palmatum atropurpureum 'Bronze'
Our Price: $3.50

This graceful multi-branched tree/shrub is a handsome addition to any landscape. Its reddish pink colour of the spring growth lasts for a month or so before taking on more greenish hues (thus a bronze) for the summer. In Autumn, the reddish colouring returns and intensifies providing an incredible and much needed 'retina blinding' display before leaf drop and the gloom of our west coast winters descends. When grown in shady conditions, the leaves are more green. Its vigour makes it a great candidate for bonsai. The maximum size an Acer palmatum reaches is all dependent upon the size of the root ball.

Acer palmatum atropurpureum 'red'
Acer palmatum atropurpureum 'Red' (Red Japanese Maple)
Our Price: $3.50

Handsome red leafed maple adds grace to any landscape. In Autumn, the red hue intensifies providing an incredible month long display before leaf drop. When grown in shady conditions, the leaves are more green. When allowed to grow naturally this multi-branching tree/shrub that may reach 7 meters in height with equal spread at maturity (50 years), but will stay smaller in containers making it a great candidate for bonsai.

Acer palmatum atropurpureum var. dissectum
Acer palmatum atropurpureum var. dissectum
Our Price: $3.75

This weeping dissected leaf form will rarely grow taller than 2 meters tall with a 2-4 meter spread. Most take on a densely branched mounded form perfect adds grace to any garden from patios to large estates. In my experience growing Japanese maples from seed, this type come true from seed 80% of the time. Don\'t prune except to remove dead or damaged material or making a bonsai. Protect roots of outdoor potted plants from extreme winter freezing.

Quick growing when young then slowing to max out at 10 metres or less. Large dark green coarse textured trilobed leaves that turn to brilliant hues of yellows, reds, and scarlets in the fall. Easy to grow.
