Why We Love It

Acer palmatum 'Aureum' is a dense, deciduous shrub with bushy green leaves.

These turn rich shades of yellow, orange and red through the seasons, with purple-plum flowers blossoming during spring.

How to Plant

Acers need some sun, but you'll get the best colour on the leaves in partial shade. It can be grown easily in moist but well-drained soils and won't need much pruning. Just watch out for a lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure which can lead to leaf scorch.

Into a Pot

If you're giving your Acer a pot for its new home, make sure it'll have the space it needs to grow. When you're ready, grab your large pot, ericaceous compost, fertiliser and watering can.

  1. Sprinkle in a mixture of soil and ericaceous compost.
  2. Tease the roots of the plant and then gently place it into the hole.
  3. Backfill soil, firm up and water thoroughly.
  4. Remove dead, damaged or crossing branches in winter.
