Acer palmatum Katsura is an ornamental tree with fantastic foliage that emerges bright orange in spring. It lightens to yellow edged in pink as the spring progresses and then turns green in summer. Finally, the leaves take on rich orange tones in autumn before falling. It makes an ideal specimen tree with a long season of interest.

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.

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.

How you will receive your plants: 

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

Can’t plant straight away? 

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist. 

Planting in the ground: 

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well. 

Planting in containers: 

Choose a pot with good drainage holes. Place stones or crocks (bits of broken pottery) at the bottom of the pot to stop the drainage holes clogging up. Use a good quality compost. Feed and water container-grown plants regularly.
