Acer japonicum ‘Aconitifolium’ is not just the nicest of all the maples that we sell, it is the best fall foliage coloured foliage plant of any type, period! This hardy, small tree will eventually reach twenty feet tall and nearly as wide, but don’t worry – we’ll all probably not be around to see it.
An undemanding dream plant for city gardens , the ‘Fern-Leaf Maple’ will grow in shade,sun or any combo of the two. Soil should be moist but not boggy. The growth habit is ‘Martini Glass’ - upright but flaring, strong and sturdy.
In October, the green leaves change into gorgeous layers of orange,red, purples and flame tones that truly defy description. Each plant puts on its own show and no two are the same.
All the photos shown here were taken of the same tree, at the same time, on the same day, at our nursery ! This incredible plant is about 5′ tall and is priced at $229.00 in a 15 gallon pot. During our 30% off sale (on ’til November 15th, 2011) , it would only cost about $160.00 !
