Ja­panese maples

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

Acer pal­ma­tum are as out­landish in their spring wardrobes as they are in au­tumn with their leafy cat­walk of flame-red, bur­gundy and pur­ple. Any of the pur­ple­leafed va­ri­eties lay on an in­tense show as the leaves emerge and for a more un­usual ef­fect, you can­not beat ‘Shin-deshojo’ which takes to the spring cat­walk in shrimp pink. ‘Orange Dream’ also likes to sur­prise with a siz­zling spring de­but. ‘Chishio’ is an­other maple with reli­able spring colour.
