Acer Palmatum Burgundy Lace 5 Litre:: Burgundy Lace as the name suggests a deep red leaved Japanese Maple, colour is not dissimilar to the more commonly known Acer Bloodgood but the leaves are more dissected, these are lovely looking plants, the pictures were taken late May so the plants are now showing full summer colour. Burgundy Lace can develop into a large Acer, reaching heights in excess of 3 metres with a similar spread.
What to expect: Your plant will arrive in a 5 litre pot and be well established with a height of approximately 70cm excluding the pot, and depending on the time of year purchased it will look just like the pictures taken in May.
Acer are a relatively low maintenance plant, that even the to the most reluctant gardener can maintain. The main thing to remember, Acer plants do not like lime soil, if pot planting always use ericaceous compost, if ground planting we would also recommend adding ericaceous compost to the planting area and if you are really keen try adding a sprinkle of sulphate of iron annually to the planting area, this will keep acid levels high. Acer do not like to be to wet so do not plant in soil that holds to much water.
