Acer palmatum 'Emma' is one of the exceptionally beautiful, weeping varieties of Japanese Maple. Featuring a domed head of narrow, long and feathery bissected leaves, the new growth emerges with an orange tone that gradually tuns to pink in the summer months before developing stunning bronze and copper tones in the autumn, prior to falling.
Japanese Maple 'Emma' is smaller than some other varieties and almost bonsai-like in form. Its lace-leaf fronded foliage is fine but plentiful and it flows and wisps delicately in the breeze. As with other Acers, it is easy to grow and requires little maintenance other than watering when needed. It prefers a semi-shaded, sheltered spot and is perfect for container growing or planting.
Acer palmatum 'Emma' will bring the oriental style and grace of Japanese rock gardens to your home. With its air of tranquility, gently flowing form and warmth of colour, it will be draw the eye no matter where it is positioned.
Plant in moist, well-drained soil using an ericaceous compost. Ericaceous compost will help the plant to establish and promote the vibrancy of the leaves. Ensure you plant in a sheltered position with protection from strong wind.
