This stunning Acer is guaranteed to make an impact in your garden for years to come. Fully hardy even in the coldest winters they lose their leaves in winter, only to burst with incredible colour in spring. The stunning foliage changes colour throughout the year, producing an amazing array of colours in Autumn. Acer atropurpureum �Red Maple� has a classic deep burgundy-purple leaves that turn an even more brilliant shade of bright red in Autumn, just before they fall. Acers are slow growing, making them ideal for growing in large pots or smaller gardens, where once planted, they are very easy to maintain, and reward you with gorgeous foliage displays for many years. They do well in light shade, as the brightest Summer hot sun can scorch the paler coloured leaves occasionally.
