Product Information

Japanese maples (Acer palmatum) are small, deciduous trees prized for their graceful habit, autumn colour and beautiful foliage, and this colourful mix of three hardy plants will give you a riot of colour through the year.

Starting in the spring, you'll see the acid green, green and red leaves gradually emerge from the individual plants, then into summer, they'll transition through green and red and then, just as you thought the colours couldn't get any better, you'll get shades of fiery orange, yellow and red as the autumn progresses.

Grown together in a single pot, our Acer collection consists of three different varieties.

An absolutely superb feature for your patio or decking, you can also try placing these miniature trees in a flower border where the foliage will contrast magically with colourful perennial flowers.

A favourite in Japanese-style gardens, many acers grow extremely slowly and are perfect in smaller gardens, or grown in containers.

Supplied as three separtate varieties of Acer palmatum, grown together in a single pot : 'Atropurpureum', 'Orange Dream' and 'Going Green'.

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 Information

Planting Advice for your Acer palmatum Festival Mix:

  • 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 Festival Mix:

  • 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:

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