Acer Palmatum

The Japanese Maple tree, Acer palmatum, is a small, spreading plant that prefers partial shade and has rich red, orange and gold autumn leaves. Ideal for small gardens and growing in pots.
Japanese Maple will reach no more than about 5 metres tall.

Browse our variety of acer trees or see our full range of garden trees for sale.

Japanese Maple plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

General description of Japanese Maple plants:

This elegant little tree is perfect for small, shady city gardens. It is actually better not to plant it in full sun, where its leaves may get scorched in a hot summer.
Japanese Maple is a slow growing tree that is best left unpruned if possible; it is naturally graceful and pruning often does more harm than good to its structure, at least while the tree is still young.

History & uses of Acer palmatum:

Also called Smooth Japanese Maple, this tree has been cultivated for so long, into so many forms, that it is hard to be certain what the wild tree looks like. Our trees are grown from seed, which about as close to wild as you can get. It is native from Russia to Japan and down to Korea. The first specimen was brought to Britain in the 1820's. The name palmatum means "like a hand", which refers to the five fingered shape of the leaves. It is a famous bonsai tree.

Although these wild species plants do not hold an RHS Award of Garden Merit, they have produced about 27 varieties that do, which mostly differ only in appearance, so it effectively holds the award in terms of being easy to grow.
