Japanese Maples - Acer Palmatum
Japanese Maples (Acer palmatum) are a species native to Japan, Korea, Taiwan and eastern China and are renowned for their staggering beauty in both autumn leaf colour and interesting bark.

The Japanese Maple has been grown in temperate areas around the world since the 1800s, but had been cultivated in Japan for centuries. The first specimen of the tree reached England in 1820.

They are a popular choice for bonsai enthusiasts and have been used throughout the history of the art.

Most are ideally grown in sun to part shade in a sheltered spot away from strong winds. Maples do well in pots, as well as the garden.
