An Acer palmatum Osakazuki is known for its dramatic Autumn colours. In Autumn leaves are crimson in colour and appear to ‘glow’ in the late afternoon sun. In Spring and Summer leaves are green in colour.
Japanese maples are deciduous and therefore drop their leaves in winter.
Acer palmatum Osakazuki grows well in full sun or partial shade. Japanese maples do not like to be dry or waterlogged, they thrive best when the soil around is kept moist. The Acer will grow as an upright shaped tree or shrub.
