  • Compact variety, ideal for a container
  • Bright red leaves in spring
  • Leaves turn orange and gold in autumn
  • Good for small gardens

As its name suggests, Acer palmatum ‘Little Princess’ is a compact Japanese maple perfect for growing in a large container. The new leaves emerge bright red in spring, turning green in summer and then vibrant gold and orange in autumn. A beautiful specimen plant for a small garden.

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.
