The beautiful Acer is good in pots, troughs, window boxes and balconies, is wind resistant and suitable for all gardens. They look effective planted individually or in groups. Like the species, this tree has discrete yellow flowers that appear in spring, however they are a little lost against the stunning emerging spring foliage which is a sunny and bright golden yellow. As the summer progresses the foliage slowly changes in colour, ending predominantly green. The plant is extremely hardy at H7 making it very durable for the British climate. Only shelter in an extremely unlikely cold snap. The plant is prone to potential pests and diseases so keep an eye out for this. Stick to the guidelines of pruning group 1.
