These stunning hardy Japanese Maple Acers are renowned for their stunning autumn foliage and are guaranteed to make an impact in your garden for years to come.
The stunning foliage changes colour throughout the year, producing an amazing array of greens, reds, pinks and oranges in a stunning show in autumn before the leaves drop.
They are fully hardy – even in the coldest of winters – and lose their leaves in winter, only to burst into life with incredible colour in the spring.
Perfect for shady spots so they do not suffer from scorched leaves, they make beautiful specimen plants planted individually in pots and placed around the patio or plant them in the border to add height and year-round interest.
