This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This gorgeous Japanese maple will provide year-round interest. The leaves emerge with a salmon flush in spring before turning yellow-green, then in autumn, they take on rich yellow and orange tones before they fall. Its golden yellow bark, which seems to glow in the winter garden is the feature that stands out long after the leaves are fallen. Relatively compact, 'Bi Ho' will make a beautiful stand-alone specimen and can even be grown in a large pot.

  • Garden care: Add a top dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of the plant in late spring. No routine pruning is required, just remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in late autumn or winter when they are fully dormant.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
