A rare and incredibly beautiful small tree, acer palmatum ‘Taylor’ will captivate all who see it with its wonderful foliage colour that changes throughout the year.
Certainly one of the prettiest compact acers, ‘Taylor’ doesn’t shout out with brash, vibrant colours like some of it’s relatives, instead taking a much softer approach with more subtle but no less stunning shades. Beginning in spring, fresh salmon pink foliage emerges, covering the tree in a gorgeous peachy glow and looking incredible. As they mature through the summer, the leaves become variegated with green edged in cream, completely changing the look of the plant. As autumn arrives, the cream margins fade away leaving the foliage entirely lime green before they fall, again giving the tree a whole new look.
Slow growing, it is a superb specimen tree when grown in a big, contemporary patio pot and it’s also perfectly happy as a centrepiece in borders. Thriving in light shade, it’ll also do well in a sunny location, a truly impressive tree for any garden.
Supplied as an established plant in a 13cm pot, ready to plant, growing to a height and spread of 2m (6½ ft).
