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

    Masses of tiny, red, spring flowers contrasting beautifully against beautiful orange-green leaves, turning more green through the summer, and orange- yellow in the autumn before dropping. 'Orange Dream' is a bushy, spreading Japanese maple, which makes an ideal specimen tree for a small garden where its elegant, open shape looks especially good silhouetted next to buildings. It's also perfect for a large container.

  • 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.
