Make an el­e­gant acer dis­play

Dis­played in a large pot, Acer pal­ma­tum ‘Dis­sec­tum’ brings its glo­ri­ous au­tum­nal colours, el­e­gant form and lacy, fil­i­gree leaves right to the back door, so you can en­joy na­ture’s fi­nal hur­rah with­out leav­ing the kitchen. This plant makes a won­der­ful stand-alone state­ment and a bril­liant foil to glossy ev­er­greens. Even its win­ter sil­hou­ette has a quiet beauty. Ac­ers are a wor­thy in­vest­ment, but to en­sure this small pot­ted Ja­panese maple thrives for many years, fol­low our easy-care guide.
