Acer palmatum 'Dissectum Atropurpureum', is a deciduous, mound-forming 'Cut Leaf'Japanese Maple with distinctive purple coloured, fine-toothed, deeply-dissected leaves throughout the spring and summer. Unusually the leaves become a tapestry of purple, with orange and yellow tones in autumn, finally turning golden before they fall.
Acer palmatum 'Dissectum Atropurpureum' is sometimes referred to as a Weeping Japanese Maple Tree due to its elegant, flowing habit. It is easy to grow and is slow-growing only reaching 2 x 2m in around 20 years. It requires little maintenance other than watering when needed. With its dramatic colour and elegant shaping, Acer palmatum 'Dissectum Atropurpureum' will make a stunning addition to the garden or patio acting as the perfect foil for other planting or just as a stand-alone statement piece to be enjoyed and admired.
Acer palmatum 'Dissectum Atropurpureum' prefers semi-shaded conditions away from direct sun. Plant in moist, well-drained soil using an ericaceous compost. Ericaceous compost will ensure the vibrancy of the leaves as this particular variety thrives in a more acidic soil. Ensure you plant in a sheltered position with protection from strong wind. This lovely Acer doesn't need pruning unless stems are damaged or diseased in which case trim during dormancy before new growth begins in the spring.
