Acer palmatum ‘Bonfire’ Japanese Maple
A great small grafted variety of Japanese Maple with brilliant coloured foliage in both spring and autumn. The habit is rounded and upright branching.
The foliage opens bright-crimson in spring, becoming mid-green in the summer then bright scarlet in autumn.
A great feature tree for small gardens, also looks nice planted in groups with other maples, Japanese gardens, rockeries and general garden planting.
Grow in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, well drained soil and protection from hot winds. Cultivate well before planting with compost/cow manure and mulch well after planting.
