Acer palmatum Skeeter’s Broom has pretty bright red leaves in spring that mature to a deep purple through the summer. Autumn sees a colour change of the leaves to bright scarlet.
Japanese maples are deciduous and therefore drop their leaves in winter.
Acer palmatum Skeeter’s Broom grows well in partial shade or full sun. 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 tree or shrub.
