Product Information

Acer palmatum ' Extravaganza ' is a Japanese maple with beautiful purple-red leaves that have distinctive broad white and pink stripes. They give the plant a striking appearance, taking on a triple-coloured cloak of foliage that will light up dull areas of the garden. Then, in autumn, the leaves turn to red before falling in an inferno of vibrant colour.

With beautiful, filigree leaves and a gently spreading habit, this Japanese Maple is a slow growing shrub that reaches just 150-170cm (60-67in), it's the perfect specimen for containers on the decking, patio or balcony and for those of us with smaller gardens and its easy to grow too, so there's no excuse for anyone not to give it a go!

Best planted in semi-shade for the best leaf colour, Extravaganza will tolerate sun as long as it's not direct, bringing an air of peace and tranquillity to wherever it is planted.

Fully winter hardy, it's the ultimate in low maintenance plants, needing very little in the way of pruning except to remove any damaged or dying branches.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, ready for planting out. Grows to 150-170cm (60-67in), plants are dormant in winter, so no leaves from approx. October until March.

Top Tips

Leaf colour is best in partial shade, although full sun can be tolerated. Leaf scorch can be caused by lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Japanese Maple Acer palmatum 'Extravaganza':

  • Winter hardy and low maintenance 'Extravaganza' prefers a spot in semi-shade (will tolerate full sun, but avoid bright, direct exposure).
  • 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.
  • 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 palmatum 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.
  • If growing in containers, use a soil-based compost such as John Innes No 2 or a good quality ericaceous compost.
  • Keep the compost evenly moist, (but not soaking) and feed in spring and early summer with a slow-release fertiliser or liquid feed such as our specialist acer feed.
  • Your Acer will need repotting into a slightly bigger container every couple of years in April or September.
  • Wrap containers with bubble wrap in winter to protect the roots.

Aftercare Advice for your Extravaganza Acer:

  • Keep plants well-watered, especially if grown in a pot, and feed with our specialist acer feed

Pruning Advice for your Japanese Maple:

  • Pruning is not necessary but can be done in late summer or early autumn if needed
