Acer palmatum is a deciduous, woody shrub native to parts of Asia and Russia. There are many garden-worthy cultivars available, which have been bred for their leaf shapes and colours. Acer palmatum ‘Atropurpureum’ is a slow-growing acer, bearing deeply lobed, red-purple leaves that turn a brilliant scarlet in autumn before falling. It makes a beautiful small tree, and the deepest purple colouring results from a spot with more light, while the foliage will be greener in low light areas.

For best results, grow Acer palmatum ‘Atropurpureum’ in moist but well-drained soil in partial shade. Protect it from the harshest winds, which may cause leaf scorch.

    Germination; Germination advice for Acers is varied. Precise, species specific advice is often contradictory. As a general guideline we suggest sowing the seed as soon as you receive it. Then soak the seeds for 24 hours in water. Sow into moist well-drained seed compost then cold stratify. Move to 1-8°C for 2-4 months. If planting in the autumn a cold frame would be ideal or otherwise use a refrigerator. Then return to warmth. Can be slow to germinate, taking up to 2 years. cold frame planted seeds often germinate in spring. When seedlings are large enough to handle transplant to a larger pot and grow on until 20cm tall before planting out.

    Growing; Prefers a moist well-drained soil. Water in summer if required. Leaf colour is best in partial shade although full sun can be tolerated. Leaf scorch can be caused by lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure to sun.

    Cultivation; No routine pruning required. Remove diseased, damaged or congested crossing shoots. Prune in late autumn to mid winter. After pruning mulch and feed.
