Description

  • Dramatic purple-red leaves
  • Brilliant scarlet autumnm foliage
  • Beautiful small tree

Acer palmatum ‘Atropurpureum’ is an elegant shrubby tree that makes a beautiful specimen plant. Its deeply lobed purple-red leaves look striking in spring and summer, and even more dramatic in autumn when they turn brilliant scarlet before falling.

Plant in a moist, well drained, neutral or slightly acidic soil, with shelter from hot afternoon sun and drying winds which could scorch the leaves. The leaves will turn deeper purple with more light, and will be greener in shade.

Water regularly during dry periods in the first year after planting, using rain water rather than tap water if possible.

If necessary, prune from November to March to remove dead, damaged or crossing branches. Pruning at other times of year will cause the tree to bleed sap, which weakens it. Avoid pruning unless necessary, as Japanese maples produce their best shape naturally.
