Τα Ιαπωνικά σφενδάμια (Άτσερ) είναι το ‘crème de la crème’ Κάθε κήπου. Ένα μαγευτικό φυτό που δεν χρειάζεται κλάδεμα και που αφήνεται να σχηματίσει μόνο του το δικό του ιδιαίτερο σχήμα.
Garnet is one of the top selling Japanese maples ever. It has been popular around the world for many decades.
Its filigree leaves are deeply cut = dissected, hence its name. They look like giant snowflakes cut in pieces and densely cover even young plants.
The colour show begins with vibrant red in the spring, turning crimson red in early summer and deep burgundy in late summer, finishing up with vivid reddish-purple in the autumn. It grows slowly and forms a shrub that is rather wider than tall.
Branches are pendent making an umbrella appearance. It is often grafted on short stems or half-standards so you can fully enjoy its drooping branches.
It needs light, acidic, well drained soil that will retain moisture. Red-leaved Japanese maples do well in full sun if you mulch the roots sufficiently not to dry out in hot summers.
They will grow in semi-shade or filtered sun, too, but the leaf colour will be slightly paler with more shades of green. If you feel you need to feed it, use balanced, slow-release fertilizers only. It can be trimmed or shaped as a bonsai.
