Japanese maples are the „créme de la créme“ of every garden. A majestic looking tree needs no pruning at all and we recommend to let is form its own shape.

Atropurpureum is a famous and commonly used variety with deeply lobed, red-purple leaves that turn bright red and orange in autumn. They have 5 tips. It forms a multi-stemmed shrub with widely spread branches. It grows slowly and is suitable as a specimen in any garden, not just a Japanese style garden.

It is an easy-care, hardy plant, which does not need much maintenance. It does well in full sun, too. It requires slightly acidic, semi-fertile, moist soil to establish extensive root system. Young plants need mulching for winter. Fully hardy to USDA zone 5b (about -28°C).
