The stunning Acer Atropurpureum is a small tree with luscious purplish leaves that turn hot red in autumn and feature tiny purple flowers in spring.
This tidy, slow-growing Acer has an open habit, and looks vivid silhouetted next to buildings, as a focal point in a small courtyard, or in a Japanese-style garden. It needs a sheltered spot, away from winds or all-day sunshine. It also looks beautiful in a container. The leaves may be greener if they do not receive enough light.
Position: Full sun (but not south-facing) or light shade
Soil: Fertile, moist, well-drained neutral to acid soil
Rate of growth: Slow-growing
Flowering period: April to May
Hardiness: Fully hardy
