Slow growing small deciduous tree, ideal for small gardens! Japanese Acer 'Atropurpurea' is one of the most reliable Acers.

The young foliage is a spectacular transparent red-purple and stunning when the sun shines through it.

Later in the season the leaves turn to a deep purple-brown -red before falling in autumn.

It’s a great specimen for a vibrant splash of colour for a freestanding location in your garden.

How to take care of Atropurpurea

Water well upon receipt of the Atropurpurea. Require a neutral to acidic soil. Plant Atropurpureain light shady sheltered location as it needs protection from cold winds and hot morning sun, which damage the leaves.

Best position is somewhere you can see the sun shining through the leaves.

Prepare planting site with 50% potting compost and 50% top soil, plant Atropurpureaso that the root ball is just below the surface and water well for the next few weeks.

Apply a top dressing of organic fertiliser during early spring but not at the time of planting wait for about 6 weeks before applying fertiliser for the first time.

Give the young trees support by means of a cane.

Never let the roots dry out. Pruning is not necessary but you can cut out dead wood in spring.
