Product Information

This gorgeous fine-leaved selection of weeping Maples makes a wonderful feature or specimen plant. Never taller than a small tree, it is slow growing, and makes a super focal point. And with this standard clear-stem form, you get extra height to show off the weeping habit to it's very best.

Covered in lovely red feathery lace foliage from early Spring, which darkens to burgundy over Summer, and then finally a riot of bright orange red in Autumn before it falls. Grow in a large pot, or  in a lawns as a feature plant, or in mixed borders - perfect both in modern, minimalist gardens, or more traditonal mixed settings.

Adds a lovely textural and colourful feel, which will last many, many years.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Acer Crimson Queen:

  • 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:

  • 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 Acer Crimson Queen:

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