This beautiful Japanese maple is a brilliantly elegant and vibrant specimen. This upright tree has an ultimate height between 2.5-4 metres and a spread of approx. 1.5-2.5 metres. Slow growing it can easily be kept small. Its glorious leaves emerge a bright red, maturing into a reddish-green or purple-red, then turning blazing red in autumn. There is also winter interest in this Acer as it’s bright red sculptural stems stand out and will give your garden a vibrant colour during those duller months, even after ‘Twombly’s Red Sentinel’ loses its leaves. It’s a great choice for container planting on patios and can add structure to a border.This acer is easy to grow preferring partial shade or full sun. Place in moist but well drained soil in a sheltered area to protect from cold winds and leaf scorching.Supplied in approx 3 litre containers.
