Acer palmatum 'Orange Dream'

Japanese maple

5 year guarantee RHS award of garden merit
3 litre pot (40cm) £34.99

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

    Beautiful orange-green leaves appear each spring, gradually becoming greener throughout the summer. Then in the autumn, shades of orange and yellow start to creep in again, gradually becoming more intense until the leaves are shed. Never getting to big, 'Orange Dream' is a bushy, spreading maple that can be used as a specimen in smaller spaces, where its graceful, open habit can best be admired. Keep it well fed and watered and it'll do well in a large pot too!

  • 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.
