Product Information

Japanese Maples are compact deciduous trees prized for their graceful habit, autumn colour and beautiful foliage, and this colourful mix of three hardy plants will give you a riot of colour through the year - all from one pot!

Starting in the spring, you'll see green, acid green, and red leaves gradually emerge from the individual plants, transitioning through green and red into summer, and just as you thought the colours couldn't get any better, you'll get shades of fiery orange, yellow and red to mark the arrival of the autumn season.

Three different varieties have been grown together in a single pot to form this 'Festival' Acer collection - a real marvel!

An absolutely superb feature for your patio or decking, you can also try placing these miniature trees in a flower border where the foliage will contrast magically with colourful perennial flowers. A favourite in Japanese-style gardens, many acers grow extremely slowly and are perfect in smaller gardens, or grown in containers.

Supplied as three separate varieties of Acer palmatum, grown together in a single 3L pot, including one each of 'Atropurpureum', 'Orange Dream' and 'Going Green', ready to plant.

Top Tips

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.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Acer palmatum Festival Mix:

  • If your soil is slightly acidic, then you have the perfect conditions to grow Japanese maples - however do not worry if you have not as most can be grown in other soils as long as they are not wet, dry or very alkaline.
  • If growing in a pot, use a 50/50 mix of ericaceous and multipurpose compost if you can - although again don't worry overly about this.
  • If planting in the garden, prepare a wide hole and loosen the soil with a fork, incorporating organic matter as needed to improve moisture retention and condition.
  • Plant your Acer so that the top of the root ball is just slightly below ground level.
  • Fill the planting hole with soil and heel well in. Water well.

 

Aftercare advice for your Acer Festival Mix:

  • Leaf colour is best in partial shade, although full sun can be tolerated as long as the plant is well watered.
  • Avoid exposed places as leaves can suffer with windburn (scorch), especially if the plant is dry.
  • Allow your Japanese Maple to get used to a whole day in the sun by starting it off in the shade, then standing it in its final sunny spot (in pot or in the garden soil) for one hour longer every day for a week.
  • Water regularly and deeply.
  • Feed with our specialist Acer feed.
  • Mulch every couple of years with well-rotted garden compost or well-rotted manure or leaf mould.

 

Pruning advice for your Acer:

  • Acers generally do not need pruning, just remove any branches that are dead or damaged.
