Japanese Maples (Acers) are the perfect choice for small, compact or courtyard gardens. They are ideal for creating a focal point in the garden, brightening a shaded corner, or elegantly overhanging a pool or water feature.
Their natural shape and the growing habit of branches make Japanese maples an ideal choice for small gardens or growing in large containers. Their leaf shapes, sizes and colours may vary immensely as do their colours. From deep greens to yellow, gold, purple or even variegated.
They can put on a show right through the year, starting as soon as the leaves uncurl in spring and continuing until their autumn transformation into shades of gold, bronze, red and orange, before they eventually fall.
