Acer Palmatum Japanese Maple Going Green 10 Litre : Acer Going Green is a beautiful green leaved Japanese Maple, its forms part of our Acer winter collection which also includes Acer Bi hoo yellow bark, and Acer Sango Kaku red bark, what sets these plants apart from other varieties is the stunning bark colour they display during the winter months, in our opinion brighter and better looking than any Cornus. Acer going green is tall upright green leaved deciduous Acer reaching heights of approximately 2 metres with a 1.5 metre spread. Bark is bright green and will stay like this as the plant matures. It is best suited to a sunny spot through to a lightly shaded area, try planting in a spot which catches winter sunshine where the green bark can stand out.

Planting Position: Best planted in a sunny spot through to partial shade ideally in an area sheltered from strong afternoon summer sun. Also away from exposed frosty sites, as late spring frosts may damage new foliage.

Soil: While acer plants are not fully fledged Ericaceous or Lime Hating plants they do prefer soil with a high Acid content.

Suitable for container planting: Yes a great choice for pot or ground.

Eventual height and spread: Upto 2 metres with an approximate spread of 1.5 metres..

Growth Speed: Relatively slow.

Growth Habit: Upright and bushy.

Pruning: Not really a requirement. However if you choose to, hard pruning should be done in the dormant months November through to early February. Some light pruning can also be undertaken during the growing season to help create a defined shape for your plant

Foliage: New growth starts pale yellow through to gold. Foliage turns bright orange during summer before turning golden orange in autumn.

Evergreen: No deciduous

Winter Hardy: Yes. It may be advisable if planted in a pot to protect the roots by wrapping the pot on bubble wrap during harsh winters or in the colder parts of the UKAcer plants prefer Acid soil, although this is not an absolute necessity, it will help the plant reach its full potential. If you have unsuccessfully tried to grow Azalea, Rhododendron, Pieris, Camellia it is quite possible your soil has a high lime content. It can be improved by adding Ericaceous compost to the planting hole this will lower the lime content and raise acid. If pot planted best choice is John Innes Ericaceous Compost this is a specially formulated sterilised loam based, lime free compost with essential foods for plants such as Acer Palmatum. Also in the coldest areas it may be advisable wrap the pots in a winter fleece or bubble wrap during the coldest months, this will help protect the roots from frost damage. Re potting in fresh compost should be considered every 2 years. Ensure an adequate water supply and feed approximately every 6-8 weeks from early spring through to mid-summer.
