Acer palmatum - Red Pygmy Japanese Maple Tree

Acer palmatum - Red Pygmy Japanese Maple Tree is a compact, dwarfed foliage tree with delicate narrow-lobed red to purple leaves. An ideal feature for foliage interest in rockeries, foreground planting and small gardens. 

Height: 2 metres.

Width: 2 metres.

Growth rate: Slow.

Form: Acer palmatum - Red Pygmy Japanese Maple Tree has a very compact, 'dome' shaped form at maturity.

Foliage: Palmate leaves with five- to seven lobes that are very narrow and linear on older branches and divided entirely to the petiole. The leaves on young wood are significantly broader in the lobes. The leaf colour varies from deep marron in spring and early summer to purplish in late summer with a tendency to bronze in direct sun.

Autumn colours: Deep rustic tones yellow, orange and red.

Tolerances: Adaptable to a range of soil types once established, but prefers a moist, well drained soil. Should not be planted in exposed areas where hot summer winds may stress the tree and leaves may suffer scorch in very hot sun. Transplants easily.

Landscape use: Acer palmatum - Red Pygmy Japanese Maple Tree will make a great specimen tree for small gardens, parks and avenues.
