Product Details
Product Details

Acer palmatum 'Firecracker' is a compact, lace-leaf variety of Japanese Maple. This slow-growing, deciduous Maple has feathery, deeply lobed, purple-red dissected leaves that turn to intensely bright shades of orange and red during autumn for an outstanding autumnal display.

Japanese Maple 'Firecracker' is a gorgeous, vibrant Maple which is known for its longevity, often living over 100 years or more! However, its slow growth and little need if any, for pruning, make it a favourite to grow in containers, in which it will happily live for many years without the need to transplant.

Acer palmatum 'Firecracker' is tolerant of most soil conditions as long as it is moist and well-drained. Being a little hardier than other varieties it will even tolerate some full sun, but for development of the most vibrant colour on the foliage, it does best in partially shaded locations in a sheltered position.
