This delicate looking, lacy leaved acer is a real garden classic. A compact and easily managed small tree, ideal for smaller garden borders as a specimen or in large pots and works especially well in modern style gardens too in metallic planters - a great urban garden plant. The leaves are very fine and lace-like and emerge each spring in a lovely shade of lime green, which deepens slightly over summer, then in autumn, it turns the most amazing orange, a wonderful finale to it's growing season - falling dormant to repat it's virtuoso performance all over again year atter year. Reaching a maximum of 7-8ft (2.2M) in 10 years, it's natural habit is slightly spreading, so has a large bonsai like style of growth. Great for oriental inspired themes. A real garden 'must-have' for low maintenance and style. Supplied as a 4 year old tree in a 3L pot, 50cm tall, well branched.
