Acer palmatum ‘Emerald Lace’ is a deciduous shrub or tree with finely dissected bright green leaves, which turn orange or red in autumn. With its rounded habit and delicate filigree leaves, it looks handsome planted in the border or in a container. It is slow-growing, eventually reaching a height of up to 4 metres.

Acer palmatum ‘Emerald Lace’ is easy to grow in moist well-drained soil. To prevent the delicate leaves from scorching, plant in partial shade sheltered from cold winds.

How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant out.

Can’t plant straight away?

Place in a sheltered spot and water regularly to keep the compost moist.

Dig a hole approximately twice as deep and 3 times as wide as the plant’s rootball. If your soil is heavy mix in a soil improver before backfilling. Firm the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

Water shrubs regularly in the first year after planting and in dry periods
